'And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me. 



Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved ; through Thy merits and mercies, 
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever 
One God, world without end. Amen. 

Auxiliary Prayer 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thank- 
ful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for 
His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

A Prayer for the Diocese 

O God, whose love reacheth unto the ends of the world ; Bless, we 
pray thee, this Diocese ; and grant that all who share its benefits may 
show forth thy glory by deeds and by gifts for the spread of thy 
kingdom ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons 
of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties com- 
mitted to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and 
earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their 
minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who 
have contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



never-failing succession of benefactors whose names may be per- 
petuated through all generations as a blessed memory, and their good 
deeds be accepted ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that 
it is more blessed to give than it is to receive ; look with favor, we 
beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, especially in this 
Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the sick and 
homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens with our ready 
gifts and service : through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose flocks 
are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the hope of 
a better country ; bless all who search for Thy sheep in scattered 
places, that they may fetch them home to Thee ; Who art with the 
Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen. 

For Religious Education 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the 
Truth and the life; Grant that we, looking unto Him may set for- 
ward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy chil- 
dren, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Social Service 

Guide us O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, and 
in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, making 
the Kingdoms of this world Thy kingdom as Thou wiliest, who dost 
live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and joy of the 
citizens of that holy city. Amen. 

For the Advance Work 

O Thou who didst promise Thy presence and power to those who 
go forth in Thy name; Stir up the loyalty and the love of Thy 
Church to supply the pressing needs of those who, as our repre- 
sentatives, proclaim Thy message of salvation, both at home and 
abroad. Accept our gifts and prosper our undertaking, to the glory 
of Thy name and the blessing of Thy children ; who with the Father 
and the Holy Spirit art worshipped and glorified, now and forever, 
Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the Field, and draw us 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou has given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy Kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Use Before and At the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity 
of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; to those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen 

Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 

workers in Thy service : bless we pray Thee Thy servant, 

and prosper her in the work to which Thou has called her. Grant 
her sufficient wisdom for every task, Thy gracious help in time of 
trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and the power to 
accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name and for Thy glory ; 
through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." Amen. 

Thanksgiving 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end : We give Thee humble thanks 
for all the great things Thou has done and are doing for the chil- 
dren of men ; for the opening of heathen lands to the light of Thy 
truth ; for making paths into the deep waters and highways in the 
desert ; for knitting nation to nation in the bond of fellowship, and 
for the planting of Thy Church in all the earth. O merciful Father, 
in whom the whole family is named, fill full our hearts with grateful 
love for this Thy goodness, granting grace henceforth to serve Thee 
better and more perfectly to know Thee ; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

The Re-dedication 

Realizing that only through personal dedication to Jesus Christ, our 
Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human endeavors, we re- 
dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ, to making 
the strength of our deeds the measure of our Faith ; to a sincere and 
simple effort in our daily living to follow with humility the example 
of our Saviour.

MINUTES 

OF THE ANNUAL MEETING 



The Fifty-first Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary to 
the National Council of the Diocese of North Carolina convened 
Thursday morning, April 20th, 1933, at eleven o'clock, in the 
Church of the Holy Comforter, Burlington, N. C. Devotional 
Exercises were conducted by Bishop Edwin A. Penick. 

The Rev. David T. Eaton extended to the Auxiliary cordial 
greetings to which Mrs. H. S. Hartzell responded. 

Appointment of the following committees were then an- 
nounced : 

Credentials — Mrs. Wm. P. Little, Chairman ; Mis. Theron Earle, 
Mrs. 0. E. Anderson.

Miss Clark at this time delivered her annual address to the 
Convention in which she expressed her appreciation for the 
privilege of serving as President of the Auxiliary, gave a resume 
of the work accomplished during the past year and made cer- 
tain recommendations for the future. 

Interesting reports from the Diocesan Officers followed. These 
reports, which reflect progress in all departments, will be printed 
in full in the Annual Report. 

Bishop Penick then presented Mrs. Beverly Ober, Secretary 
of Religious Education in the Diocese of Maryland. Mrs. Ober 
conducted the Noonday Prayers and Meditation and delivered 
a most inspiring address on the United Thank Offering. 

At 12 :30 Group Conferences were held after which Luncheon 
was served in the Parish House. 

The Convention was again called to order at 2 :15. Forty- 
seven Branches responded to roll call. The Committee on Cre- 
dentials reported that there was a total of one hundred and 
fifteen members of the Convention with power to vote. 



10 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 

Election of President of the Auxiliary and nomination of a 
Representative on the Diocesan Executive Council was then in 
order. Miss Emma Hall of Charlotte was duly elected Presi- 
dent. A motion was passed that the new President of the "Wom- 
an's Auxiliary be nominated as a member of the Executive 
Council of the Diocese. 

The Rev. J. A. Vache spoke enthusiastically in behalf of 
Vade Mecum, calling special attention to the Woman's Auxil- 
iary conference to be held August l-15th. Camps for the young 
people will also be held during the summer. The Auxiliary was 
asked to support this venture as far as possible. 

Mrs. Cruikshank made a very earnest appeal for the support 
of Saint Mary's School, stating that one girl from every parish 
in the five Carolina Dioceses would complete the full enrollment 
of the School. 

The Rev. W. H. Wheeler brought a message from the Thomp- 
son Orphanage, expressing his appreciation to the Auxiliary 
for the clothing of seventy-seven children and for the new 
laundry equipment procured by the Octagon Soap Wrappers. 
He urged the continuation of this plan of collecting the coupons 
so as to establish a discretionary fund for the Orphanage. 

In the absence of Miss Albertson the Rev. Mr. Vache reported 
on Saint Mary's House at the Woman's College of the Uni- 
versity. 

Mrs. F. S. Spruill appealed to the Auxiliary for contribu- 
tions toward the expense of remodeling Ravenscrof t, the Bishop's 
home in Raleigh. A motion was passed that the Auxiliary 
accept this privilege. Upon motion, the roll was called in order 
to give the Branches present an opportunity of contributing to 
this fund and the sum of $279.50 was pledged. Other Branches 
expressed their willingness to give but at this time they were 
unable to state the amount. 

The following Committee Chairmen made interesting and 
encouraging reports : Mrs. E. K. Powe on the Prayer Partner- 
ship Plan; Miss Camille Hunt on the Recruiting Work; Mrs. 
B. C. Sharpe on Work with the Isolated, and Mrs. Ben White 
on the Valle Crucis Scholarship. Reports from the Church 
Periodical Club and from the Committee on the Promotion of 
the Young People's Work were read by the Secretary. 

A message from the President of the Diocesan Colored Aux- 
iliary was then read. In connection with this report Bishop 
Penick explained that there were no longer Convocations in the 
Diocese. At the Diocesan Convention last May all racial dis- 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 17 

tinctions were obliterated. He suggested the appointment of a 
Committee to study the relationship of the Colored Auxiliary 
to the Diocese and to clarify the situation. A motion was passed 
that such a committee be appointed. 

Mrs. F. S. Spruill asked the Auxiliary to consider the pur- 
chase of a portrait of Bishop Atkinson which was displayed 
during the Convention. The President stated that she would 
appoint a committee with power to investigate the advisability 
of purchasing this portrait at a price not to exceed $150.00. 

A letter was read from the President of the Girls' Friendly 
Society expressing her regret that she was unable to attend the 
Convention. 

At 4:30 the Meeting recessed for the day. 

Evening Prayer was held at eight o'clock at which time 
Bishop Penick delivered the Convention Sermon. His theme 
was History as the Interpreter of the present difficulties through 
which the Church is now passing and that similar conditions 
have been met in the past and may be overcome in the present 
by Faith and Hope. The offering at this service will be given 
for scholarship aid at Vade Mecum. 

Friday morning, April 21st, at 7 :30 Holy Communion was 
celebrated by Bishop Penick, assisted by the Rev. David T. 
Eaton. At this service the United Thank Offering was presented 
followed by the Commemoration of the Departed. 

At 9 :45 the Business Session opened with Devotions con- 
ducted by the Rev. David T. Eaton. The minutes of the 
preceding day were read and approved. 

Interesting reports from the following Group Conferences 
held on Thursday were given : Supply Work, Religious Educa- 
tion, Christian Social Service, United Thank Offering and 
Treasurers. 

The President at this time explained the Program of the 
Auxiliary Conference which will convene at Vade Mecum Au- 
gust 1-1 5th. Bishop Penick will teach a course on the Life of 
Christ; Mrs. W. J. Gordon on the Mission Study Book; Mrs. 
Theodore Partrick, Jr., on the Principles of Teaching; the 
Rev. Theodore Partrick, Jr., on the Prayer Book, and the Rev. 
J. A. Vache on Women of the Old Testament. The Rev. Rod- 
erick Jackson will act as Chaplain. 

Bishop Penick then introduced the Rev. Roderick Jackson, 
Missionary to Japan, who gave a most interesting address on the 
Various Phases of the Work of Our Church in Japan. 
2 



18 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 

Miss Venetia Cox, a Missionary to China, was presented 
to the Convention. She spoke for a few minutes on her work 
in the foreign field. 

Brief talks on four Diocesan Auxiliary Objectives for 1933 
were delivered by outstanding women of the Auxiliary: Mrs. 
R. B. Coit of Greensboro spoke on Greater Emphasis on the 
United Thank Offering; Mrs. W. D. Burwell of Henderson on 
Organization of Woman's Work into One Unit; Mrs. J. D. 
Quern of Charlotte on the Development of Individual Responsi- 
bility, and Mrs. William J. Gordon of Spray on the Power of 
Prayer. 

Mrs. W. W. Simms stated that the United Thank Offering 
presented at the early service of the Convention amounted to 
$1,906.83. She urged the Auxiliary to have as its objective a 
fall offering sufficient to make the 1933 offering equal at least, 
and if possible, to exceed that of 1932. She expressed her 
gratitude to Mrs. Ober for her contribution to the Program of 
the Convention, whereupon the Auxiliary gave Mrs. Ober a 
rising vote of thanks. 

At this time Mrs. Ober addressed the Convention on the 
Various Objectives and Helps in the Work of Religious Educa- 
tion. 

The Rev. J. L. Jackson of Charlotte informed the Auxiliary 
of the Present Status of the National Church and of the Diocese 
of North Carolina. 

Mrs. James Cordon, Chairman of the Committee on Resolu- 
tions, presented the following report : 

The Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina 
wishes to express its deep sense of loss in the death of our 
beloved Bishop and Friend, Joseph Blount Cheshire, who de- 
parted this life on December 27, 1932, and its appreciation and 
gratitude for the example of his Godly Life. 

As a tribute to the loving memory of Bishop Cheshire the 
Auxiliary then stood in silent prayer after which Bishop Penick 
read appropriate prayers. 

The following resolutions were adopted by the Convention, 
viz. : 

(1) That the Woman's Auxiliary sponsor the planting of a shrub, 
tree or flowering plant in the Cathedral Garden, Washington, D. C,

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 19 

(3) That the Executive Board be requested to consider the ad- 
visability of omitting from the Budget of 1934 the pledges for 
scholarship aid to Valle Crucis, Penland and Bishop Tuttle School, 
and are hereby authorized to make such changes in the Budget as 
they deem wise. 

(4) That the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina in the Annual Meeting assembled in the Church of the Holy 
Comforter, Burlington, N. C, April 21, 1933, does hereby authorize 
and empower the Executive Board of the Woman's Auxiliary in this 
Diocese to take any, or such action, as, in its judgment may be 
necessary and advisable to protect the interests of the Auxiliary with 
regard to the account of the Treasurer of the Auxiliary, Mrs. Wm. P. 
Little, in the sum of $1,157.80 on deposit in the Page Trust Company, 
Raleigh, N. C, on March 2, 1933. 

(5) That the Auxiliary hereby express by a rising vote its sincere 
appreciation for the devoted and effective leadership of the retiring 
President, Miss Rena Clark, and her Secretary, Mrs. H. H. Philips, 
during their successful administration of the last three years. 

The Committee on Resolutions then presented the following 
eight recommendations of the President, Miss Rena Clark, all 
of which were adopted : 

I. That the Auxiliary should represent the services of the entire 
womanhood of the Church. 

II. For every Branch a Program that entails responsibility outside 
of the Parish as well as within. 

III. Rotation of officers every two or three years. 

IV. Knowledge of Missionaries — especially those from the Diocese 
of North Carolina. 

V. That all Report Blanks be sent in duplicate form, one to be 
returned to the District Officer and one to the Diocesan Officer. 

VI. That the time limit for the Honor Roll be changed to February 
1st. 

VII. Full payment for all scholarships — Penland, Valle Crucis and 
Bishop Tuttle. 

VIII. That the Auxiliary devise some means of contributing to the 
deficit of $145,000 needed to complete the budget for the National 
Church this year. 

(6) That all funds pledged by the Auxiliary this year for the 
Advance Work Program be applied to the deficit of $145,000 existing 
in the National Church ; and that we endeavor to stand firmly behind 
any plans that the Diocese may present. 

Mrs. James Cordon, Chairman. 

Miss Katherine Hilliard, Chairman of the Courtesy Com- 
mittee, then read the following report : 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF COURTESY COMMITTEE 

Your Courtesy Committee feel that we are voicing the sentiment 
of every member of this Convention in expressing our sincere grati- 
tude to all who have prepared for us such a feast of good things both 
material and spiritual. We hope that each delegate may carry home 
to her Branch of the Auxiliary something of the zeal and enthusiasm 
stirred in us by the inspiring messages brought to us by our Bishop, 
by Mrs. Ober and by the Rev. Roderick Jackson of Japan, as well 
as by our own officers and especially by the words of our beloved 
retiring President. 

We would also express our appreciation of the generous hospitality 
extended by the women of the Church of the Holy Comforter, and 
shall always think of Burlington as a city of delightful homes and 
charming hostesses. Our thanks are also due to the Rector for the 
use of this beautiful Church, such a perfect setting for our United 
Thank Offering Communion. 

In spite of clouds and rain and cold north winds, we shall carry 
away only the brightest, happiest memories of this our Fifty-first 
Annual Convention. 

Katherixe Hilliard, Chairman. 

All business having been transacted and the minutes of the 
day read and approved, Bishop Penick with an appropriate 
service installed the new President of the Auxiliary and pro- 
nounced the Benediction, bringing* to a close the Fifty-first An- 
nual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North 
Carolina. 

Ethel S. Philips, Secretary. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 21 



PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS TO THE CONVENTION OF 1933 

Dear Members of the Auxiliary and Friends: 

Again it is my pleasure to greet you on the occasion of the 
Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese of 
JNTortli Carolina. How vividly our minds revert to that meeting 
last year in Henderson where we celebrated our Golden Jubilee ; 
the inspiration of which no doubt has served many times as a 
light in our darkness. Since then, death has removed from our 
midst the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, our beloved Bishop 
and our oldest friend. I pause to pay tribute to him whose 
memory will always be one of our most treasured possessions. 

Today marks the end of the first year in the second half of the 
century in the life of the Auxiliary in this Diocese. If we are 
to be faithful interpreters of that life to others, there must be a 
steadiness of purpose in all that we do. We must rise above the 
difficulties and look beyond the problems that confront us; we 
must realize that growth involves change; we must know that 
the value of anything lies in the use we make of it. We must 
remember that after all what counts are our motives, our 
methods, our attitudes — they reflect our own outlook on life. 

Paradoxically as it may sound, the past fifty years reveal 
tremendous changes, yet there seems no change at all. The 
record of those earlier years disclose many of the same ideals 
and objectives, the same warnings and weaknesses, that char- 
acterize our efforts of today. It is conclusive evidence that those 
truths and ideals of life which constitute the eternal aspects of 
it always remain the same. It is true that we have grown 
numerically, financially, and, I hope, spiritually — yet it is not 
the magnificence of glorious deeds that availeth, but the magnifi- 
cence of a glorious spirit. And that is what I would have to 
stand out among us. 

This year you will observe that the Convention has been 
shortened. Your Executive Board did not think it in keeping 
with the spirit of the times to proceed with the usual program. 
That you may not lose by this curtailment, I have endeavored 
to concentrate on those matters that concern us most. An 
intimate knowledge of the National Church, the Diocese, and 
the Auxiliary is the vital duty of each of us. What we think 
and do is what the Church of our time believes and does for the 
world. I have set as the keynote of this Convention "Faith and 
Courage" — qualities that we need above all others in this time 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



of chaos and uncertainty. We must make sure however that our 
Faith is not placed in values false and vain ; we must rememher 
that 

"Courage isn't a brilliant dash, 
A daring deed in a moment's flash, 
It's something deep in the soul of man 
Working always to serve some plan." 

It is in that spirit that I would have you enter into the pro- 
cedure of these two days. 

In reviewing the records for the past year I find that it has 
heen a good one. Written reports, personal contacts and tangible 
evidence give proof that the Auxiliary has gone forward, but I 
am compelled to confess that her progress is not up to her full 
capacity. Careless thinking, lack of preparation and, I fear, 
even indifference are largely responsible. The branches are 
beginning more and more to have a well rounded program con- 
sisting of worship, study, work and gifts. Attention given to 
Religious Education, Christian Social Service and the Supply 
Department testify to their importance. The United Thank 
Offering still retains its beloved place in the hearts of many. 
The Treasurer presents a splendid showing for all funds. While 
it is true that our material gifts are not as large as those of 
former years, in proportion to the wealth of the donors they 
far exceed those of more prosperous times. From this Diocese 
two girls have entered Church work; Ethel Louise Byerly, a 
product of Summer Volunteer Work, who is being trained for 
Religious Education and Martha Dabney Jones who is working 
among Young People in Eastern Oregon. Four young men have 
entered the ministry. Interest in and responsibility for Young 
People and Students are a real obligation. Knowledge of the 
■whole program of the Church, not of just a part of it, is steadily 
gaining ground. Two new branches have been organized and 
additional groups added to branches already established. The 
sum of $1,128.00 was contributed for the deficit in the National 
Church budget of last year. Sixty-six children have been clothed 
at the Thompson Orphanage and sufficient Octagon Soap Wrap- 
pers have finally been procured for the laundry equipment. 
Constant effort is being made to strengthen and develop the 
devotional life of the individual. Believing that these are 
fundamental requisites, observance of Days of Intercession, 
Corporate Communions and the reading of religious books and 
Church papers are constantly urged. To Bishop Penick we 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



are indebted for a most helpful and adequate "Form of Medita- 
tion and Prayer" wliicli was used on St. Andrew's Day. The 
special intention for that day was the success of the "Every 
Member Canvass." The Auxiliary realizes that spiritual poverty 
is bound to be the result of spiritual unpreparedness. 

Perhaps the outstanding event of the past year was the visit 
of Mrs. D. D. Taber, a National Field Worker. That she was 
able to do much of permanent value is clearly shown in the 
activities and renewed life of many branches. In some places 
nothing of consequence was accomplished ; due no doubt to a 
combination of causes. 

For me the past year has been filled with many activities, all 
of which have been interested and encouraging. I have held 
two Executive Board meetings, attended ten District meetings, 
one Educational Institute, the Adult Conference at Kanuga 
where it was my privilege to plan the program for Auxiliary 
Day and preside on that occasion. I have spoken at several 
branch meetings and have held conferences with Diocesan 
Officers and other leaders. Illness in my family prevented 
me from attending the Provincial Synod at Kanuga where 
I was scheduled to make a brief talk on Prayer. In monthly 
letters to each branch and to members of the Executive Board, 
I have endeavored to direct attention to matters which con- 
cern all of us. In addition, the Carolina Churchman has given 
me other means of presenting subjects pertaining not only to 
the Diocese but to the Church at large. 

Today we elect a new President and a Representative on the 
Executive Council of the Diocese. I recommend that the same 
person shall be chosen for both offices. May we remember that 
great natural ability is not a prerequisite to effective Christian 
service. Those who are diligent in their present service should 
be called to higher service. 

I desire to bring before you at this time a notable addition 
to our Diocesan equipment — the new Conference Centre, Vade 
Mecum. Last summer very successful Camps for Young People 
were held there ; this year, in addition to these, there will be an 
Auxiliary Conference of two weeks for all women of the Diocese. 
A program has been planned in which the strongest leaders of 
the Diocese are to take part. In the past there has been such 
a small percentage of women to attend Conferences that I am 
prone to think that they do not realize what delightful affairs 
they are. My own experience at Kanuga has proved of such 



24 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 

help to me that I cannot recommend them too strongly. Vade 
Mecum belongs to us ; it is accessible to all ; the cost is very low ; 
the standard is high. Shall it prove of great value to the Diocese 
or shall it fail? The responsibility rests on you and me. I there- 
fore appeal to you for your unqualified support of this venture. 

It is with deep regret that I inform you of the resignation of 
the Treasurer, Mrs. William P. Little, to take effect May 1st. 
The Executive Board has elected Mrs. R. B. Davis of Rocky 
Mount, a former Treasurer, to fill the unexpired term which 
will end in 1934. The postponement of the Provincial Educa- 
tional Institute which was to have been held in Charlotte, April 
6-8, is a real disappointment. Unsettled conditions in the finan- 
cial world made it unquestionably the wisest course to pursue. 
Also for your information I desire to make the following state- 
ment in regard to the funds of the Auxiliary in the Page Trust 
Company of Raleigh which closed at the beginning of the Bank- 
ing Holiday and has never reopened. The records show that the 
Auxiliary had on deposit there as of March 1st, 1933, the sum 
of $1,137.47. Of this amount $650.99 is a balance in Funds 
Account from 1932 ; the remainder, $486.48, was contributed in 
1933. A new account has been opened by the Treasurer in the 
Wachovia Bank and Trust Company of Raleigh. 

As your leader for the past three years, I have come into 
very close contact with every phase of Auxiliary work. To plans 
and problems, I have given time, thought and study. With no 
intention of infringing upon the rights of my successor, I 
venture to suggest the following recommendations for your 
consideration : 

1st. That the Auxiliary should represent the services of the entire 
womanhood of the Church. 

2nd. For every hranch a program that entails respousibility out- 
side of the Parish as well as within. 

3rd. Rotation of officers every two or three years. 

4th. Knowledge of Missionaries — especially those from the Diocese 
of North Carolina. 

5th. That all report blanks be sent in duplicate form, one to be 
returned to District Officer and one to Diocesan Officer. 

6th. That the time limit for the Honor Roll be changed to February 
1st. 

7th. Full payment for all scholarships — Penland, Valle Crucis and 
Bishop Tuttle. 

8th. That the Auxiliary devise some means of contributing to the 
deficit of $145,000 needed to complete the budget for the National 
Church this year. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



As my term of office draws to a close, I am bewildered by 
many questions — what have I accomplished, wherein have I 
failed ? Although I have given to you the best of which I have 
been capable, how often I must have been a disappointment. 
To many I have been of no help ; to some I am only a myth. I 
would like to think that for others I have had a part — even a 
small one — in helping them to possess a fuller knowledge and 
appreciation of what the Auxiliary represents. My desire has 
been to emphasize the spiritual side, not the mechanical; to 
impress upon you the tremendous power derived from medita- 
tion, prayer and Corporate Communions ; to have the Auxiliary 
a real force in the Parish. And as I think back upon these three 
years, my heart fills with gratitude for the opportunities you 
have given me. My life is much the richer and fuller. IsTew 
understanding and deeper insight have come through experience. 
My returns far exceed my investments. With deep appreciation 
I acknowledge your loyalty, your cooperation, your understand- 
ing. To the branch at Chapel Hill, I am grateful for the 
hospitality extended during my Executive Board Meetings there. 

May the Holy Spirit rest upon us and upon all of our work. 
May we have light to guide us, courage to support us and faith 
to sustain us, now and forever more. 

Ren a H. Claek. 



26 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF SECRETARY 

During the past year the Secretary has sent notices to all members 
of the Executive Board and Committee Chairmen concerning meet- 
ings for September and March. A copy of the minutes was mailed to 
each member of the Board. 

Annual Reports, which were edited by the President and the Secre- 
tary, were sent to all Diocesan, District and Branch Officers and 
Committee Chairmen. 

Letters from the President have been mailed each month to all 
Branch Presidents and members of the Executive Board. 

In preparation for the Every Member Canvass, a form of Prayer 
and Intercession prepared for the Auxiliary by Bishop Penick to be 
used on St. Andrew's Day was enclosed in the November letter. 

Report blanks, pledge lists and explanation of the pledge lists were 
mailed to all Branches at the beginning of the year. 

Leaflets entitled "The Woman's Auxiliary" which suggested the 
spiritual meaning of the Auxiliary were enclosed in the regular 
February letter. 

In March, a letter from Miss Lindley, explaining the status of the 
National Church and requesting the Auxiliary's support, was mailed 
to all Branches. 

Return post cards for the use of the delegates for Convention were 
enclosed in the regular March letter. 

Programs for the Annual Meeting were mailed to all members of 
the Executive Board, Branch Presidents, Committee Chairmen and 
Speakers. 

The following information, requested by the Church Missions 
House, has been received through the report blanks from the various 
Branches of the Diocese : 

Number of Parishes holding Corporate Communions 

during the year 51 

Number of Parishes holding Quiet Days 18 

Number of Parishes holding Days of Intercessions 52 

Number of persons using Calendar of Daily Bible Readings 737 

It has been a genuine pleasure to serve as Secretary to the Presi- 
dent of the Woman's Auxiliary for the past three years. With this 
rich privilege, there has come to me a deeper understanding and ap- 
preciation of the real value of the Auxiliary to the Diocese. 

Ethel S. Philips, Secretary.

Your Box Work Report for 1932 is most gratifying, and the letters 
of appreciation from the recipients of the boxes in the Mission Fields 
make me believe we are doing one of the most useful pieces of work 
in our Church. 

As to our future plans I wish to say that Mrs. Wade, our National 
Supply Secretary, and also the Executive Board in our own Diocese, 
have decided that I may use my judgment in buying garments rather 
than making them, in view of the fact that at present "bought" gar- 
ments are cheap and well made. This plan will save much unneces- 
sary postage. Probably therefore, you will not receive any material 
for sewing next year. However, if some parish feels that cutting or 
sewing is necessary to maintain the interest in the work please let 
me know, and I shall be glad to continue to send that parish material. 

I earnestly request that the time you have spent in sewing shall 
be devoted to other phases of the Box Work. Will not every Parish 
have a meeting on this department in 1933? Interesting material is 
furnished us for these programs, and it is essential that we study and 
know about the Mission Felds where our allotments are sent. 

Please continue with your loyal support and prayers. Send me 
boxes of second-hand clothing, and above all return your pledge and 
report cards promptly. Some Branches sent their cards too late to be 
included in the year's report. 

May God bestow His richest blessing on all of us for carrying out 
His Commission "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least 
of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." 

Mrs. Geo. Watts Caer, Box Work Secretary. 



28 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



CHRISTIAN SOCIAL, SERVICE REPORT 

It is probable, iu tbe life of the Auxiliary, there Las never been as 
great need for Christian Social Service among deserving people, as 
during the year that has just ended. 

Worthy trained workers without any fault of their own have been 
thrown out of employment, during this time of world unrest, and 
have faced for the first time real poverty. 

The Church and the Auxiliary have had rich opportunities for 
service ; and it is with grateful hearts that we report a tremendous 
lot of work accomplished. 

We have cooperated with the Red Cross in making literally thou- 
sands of garments, and with the Salvation Army and Welfare Or- 
ganizations in supplying food and fuel for the needy. We have also 
cooperated in the feeding of many undernourished school children. 
We have done a great deal of Clinic and Prison work. It is impos- 
sible to estimate in monetary value the numerous trays and medicines 
we have given. 

Our work among the deaf-mutes in Greensboro, Durham and 
Erwin has gone forward, and we are encouraged to organize this 
work in other places. 

Besides our usual gifts, we have endeavored to establish the custom 
of making Memorial Offerings to the Thompson Orphanage and hope 
to stress this feature more and more. 

"No purse, 
No Script, 
No shoes to wear ; 
What will they do? 
How will they fare? 
No purse — no pride ; 
No script — no care 
But God — and all things everywhere." 

Coriniva Gant, Christian Social Service Secretary. 



REPORT OF DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY 

The year of 1932 showed definite increase in interest in the 
Church's educational program and in response to this interest and 
requests for assistance of various kinds, we requested the services 
of one of the National Field Secretaries of the Auxiliary, and in 
the fall Mrs. D. D. Taber, for nine years National Field Secretary, 
came into the Diocese. For three months Mrs. Taber gave her entire 
time and visited most of our Branches discussing plans, aims, pro- 
grams, etc., and making suggestions from her broad experience. 
Judging from reports since her visit, the scope of our work has been 
widened, organizations strengthened, understanding of opportunities 
increased and we feel certain that permanent good will result from 
her stay in our Diocese." 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 29 

One of Mrs. Taber's suggestions was a list of suggested subjects 
for program meetings with reference material. In February, I sent 
such a list of twelve subjects, to every Branch and District Secretary, 
with a letter explaining that these were only suggestions to be used 
if needed and in the order best suited to each group. 

I hope we can, all, realize that the object of a program of Re- 
ligious (Christian) education is not simply programs for meetings or 
study classes, important as these things are, but that we will take 
as our objectives, "Growth and Development of our Christian Lives" 
and "Understanding of the Enterprise of the Kingdom of God and 
Participation in that Enterprise." It will be necessary for each group 
to make a careful survey of its needs and to select an aim for the 
year that will lead toward our objective. Our program should in- 
clude Bible classes, Church services, devotional reading, leadership 
training, to promote understanding. From the present condition in 
the Church, we realize that it is imperative for us to become in- 
telligently informed and I am urging that we emphasize our Mis- 
sionary work. 

I would suggest that we attempt to make our program the pro- 
gram for the whole Parish or Mission and that we strive for 
intelligent, convinced, functioning Christians. 

Mrs. Baxter Moore, Diocesan Educational Secretary. 



REPORT OF UNITED THANK OFFERING CUSTODIAN 

Amount received from Mrs. A. S. Lawrence, Spring Offering $2,224.91 

Amount received from Fall Offering 1,960.10 

Interest to December 31, 1932 84.43 

Total .$4,269.44 

The United Thank Offering in the Diocese of North Carolina 
reached its peak in the year 1928, when our gifts amounted to 
$7,127.48. Each year since has shown a steady decline. 

At the February meeting of the National Executive Board of the 
Woman's Auxiliary, Mrs. Henry Hill Pierce of New York was ap- 
pointed Chairman of a committee charged with the responsibility of 
stimulating interest in the United Thank Offering during the re- 
mainder of this triennium. To Mrs. Hill's inquiry I have replied : 
"I do not think decrease in the Offering from the Diocese of North 
Carolina is due to weakened interest, but rather to drastic reduction 
of incomes." 

Is this entirely true? 

Have we, the Custodians of the Diocese, been earnest and tireless 
in our efforts to keep the Thank Offering in the minds and hearts of 
our women? 

Have we placed proper emphasis on that Offering which heads the 
list — the Offering of prayer? 

Has our appeal been a living thing, aglow with the fire of our own 
love? 

Have we created in our women a feeling of responsibility toward 
those who represent us as God's messengers? 



30 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 

Have we sought to establish any relation between the members of 
the Woman's Auxiliary and our United Thank Offering workers? 

Have we provided stirring programs, earnest speakers, forceful 
pageants as a means of arousing interest? 

Have we, the women of the Diocese of North Carolina, held up the 
hands of our faithful Custodians in their efforts to promote the 
Thank Offering? 

Have we tried to carry out their suggestions? 

Have we been quick to speak a word to some woman who does not 
know the joy of a share in our Gift? 

Has our Thank Offering been a spasmodic thing of which we have 
to be reminded twice a year, or remembered faithfully in gratitude 
for God's goodness to us? 

Have we recognized the Thank Offering as a vital force in bringing 
the Kingdom of God on earth? 

It is a beautiful thing to speak of the United Thank Offering as 
"an overflow" ; to say it is separate and apart from budgets and 
quotas ; that the words "assessment" and "allotment" are not used 
in this connection. But what of the word "responsibility"? Does it 
apply when we consider the two hundred women who have made 
of their lives a great Thank Offering? Is it a serious matter that 
our thoughtlessness hinders their labors? 

Can we in full truth answer Mrs. Hill's inquiry and still place 
reduction of our gifts entirely on the shoulders of weakened incomes? 

Closer contacts with our workers and better acquaintance with 
their undertakings for the Master are my hope and program for the 
coming year. 

And, oh my friends, take this message home with you ! Live close 
to your Thank Offering ! Let its true meaning influence your "prayers 
and gifts and joyful service" and we shall not be hurt again with 
reports of decreased offerings. 

Mrs. W. W. Simms, Custodian, United Thank Offering.

Dear Madam : 

As requested we have made an audit of the Cash Receipts and 
Disbursements of the Woman's Auxiliary — Diocese of North Caro- 
lina — for the year ended December 31, 1932. Our work was confined 
to the transactions as recorded on the cash books. We checked in 
detail all recorded cash transactions, and found all receipts as shown 
to have been properly deposited in the Page Trust Company, Raleigh, 
North Carolina. All Disbursements were found to have been made on 
properly signed and endorsed checks. The records were found to have 
been neatly kept, and no irregularities were found.

CI. OO A YEAR 



34 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 

REPORTS OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 

DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The Lenten Season of 1932 was given in a very whole-hearted way 
in the District of Edgecombe to the Golden Jubilee Fund, and while 
the goal was not actually reached, the campaign was in a great 
measure a success. 

The Spring meeting and the week preceding, the District was 
honored by a visit from its own Prayer Partner, Miss Helen J. Dis- 
brow of Kyoto, Japan. We learned first-hand just what the Woman's 
Auxiliary means in the Orient and we were brought into personal 
fellowship with our charming and attractive Prayer Partner. 

The fall brought us one of our National field workers, Mrs. D. D. 
Taber. She spent a week in the District, visiting seven branches and 
the District meeting. The object of Mrs. Taber's visit was to deepen 
the spirituality not only of the Auxiliary but of the whole Church. 
We have evidence to believe that our District is aroused to this 
spiritual interest. Even under the burden of the times we seem to be 
holding our own, with our sixteen active and interested branches, 
a little poorer perhaps in worldly goods, but by reason of this, un- 
daunted in spirit and a firmer faith in God and His Church. 

The closing days of the year brought sorrow to the District in the 
passing of its own beloved Bishop. How thankful we are for his long 
and useful life ! Since '"God's in his Heaven all is right with the 
world !" 

Mrs. W. Johnston King, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The work in the District of Granville is going forward with a re- 
newed vision and greater power. The chief factor in this improve- 
ment is the work of Mrs. D. D. Taber, who visited five of the nine 
branches in the District. Under her guidance, the bx - anches in Hen- 
derson and Oxford have unified the work of all the women of the 
Parish under the head of the Woman's Auxiliary. Both of these 
branches report the success of this organization and increased in- 
terest, especially in the Departments of Religious Education. In War- 
renton a new branch of the young women of the Parish has been 
organized and the Young People's Service League has been revived. 

The Spring District meeting was held in Townsville. Splendid talks 
were made at this meeting by our guests, Miss Rena Clark and Miss 
Helen Disbrow, of Kyoto, Japan. At the Fall meeting in Littleton, 
we were fortunate in having Bishop Penick and Mrs. Taber to talk to 
us. Three new officers were elected ; Miss Lea Perry, Supply Secre- 
tary ; Mrs. Herbert Petar. Social Service Secretary ; and Miss Carrie 
Helen Moore, Prayer Partner. 

We hope to have several members from our District attending 
Summer Conferences, and our efforts will be for an increase in our 
United Thank Offering. 

Mrs. William R. Baskerville, Chairman. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



DISTRICT OF WAKE 

The outstanding accomplishment for Wake District during the past 
year has been the great amount of Social Service Work done locally 
by each branch. The Lucy Pittenger Branch, Good Shepherd, stored 
used clothing and donated food supplies at the Parish house for use 
as needed. St. Anne's paid part of a man's salary when he was out 
of work. They also did some work among the prisoners. Christ 
Church helped fourteen families, clothed six orphans, sent ten boxes 
of clothing, one box of shoes and 30 yards of dress material to the 
Thompson Orphanage. They sent $319.00 in money, plus $65.00 iu 
individual donations to the Thompson Orphanage and $70.00 to an- 
other worthy cause. St. Stephen's, Erwin, contributed to the Coolee- 
mee Clinic. St. Saviour's did extensive social service work among 
its own members. St. Paul's took care of families at Christmas time 
and distributed food, clothing and magazines. 

It is with regret that we report that St. Gabriel's at Selma and St. 
John's at Wake Forest, on account of diminished membership, have 
ceased to function as branches. However, it is the purpose of the 
District Chairman to keep in touch with the members and invite them 
to consolidate with a near-by branch until such time as an increase 
in membership warrants reorganization of these branches. 

Two new Associate Auxiliaries have been organized, one at Christ 
Church and one, St. Hilda's, with sixteen members at Good Shepherd. 
Good Shepherd has also organized a Girl Scout Troop. They report 
fifteen members of the Auxiliary teaching in the Church School. 

Over $5J)4.00 has been sent in for the United Thank Offering. All 
branches have responded well to the call for Soap Wrappers. 

All branches held Lenten Study Classes and observed the Inter- 
cessory Days. 

The Spring District Meeting was held at Christ Church and the 
Fall meeting at St. Saviour's with good attendance. 

At the Fall meeting Mrs. D. D. Taber of the National Field De- 
partment was present. She returned October 18th and held a 
Diocesan Educational Institute at Good Shepherd Church. Following 
this she spent three days holding meetings with the different 
branches. 

Mrs. Victor Moore was elected District Supply Secretary to suc- 
ceed Mrs. H. J. Bryson. 

A constructive suggestion came from St. Stephen's. This was that 
each department secretary say the prayer for her department at 
each monthly meeting. 

The stress of the times seems to inspire our branches to double 
their efforts. Hence we are anticipating active and earnest work 
during the coming year. 

Mrs. C. E. McLean, Chairman. 



36 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The reports for 1932 from the nine branches in the District of 
Orange are even better than last year. Eight observed Intercessory 
Days and each branch reported splendid work done in all depart- 
ments of the Auxiliary. Much more study is given to Religious Edu- 
cation in this District than in the past two years, and the Social 
Service Work is outstanding. 10.477 Octagon Soap Wrappers have 
been collected in this District. 

The District Meeting was held at St. Matthew's Church, Hillsboro. 
in October, and was very well attended. We were very fortunate in 
having with us, Mrs. D. D. Taber. head of the National Field Secre- 
taries of the Auxiliary, who addressed us on the program of the Wom- 
an's Auxiliary. Reverend Mr. Bost, of Durbam, gave a very instruc- 
tive talk on the Forward Movement. 

In the afternoon, Mrs. Taber led a round table discussion on the 
"Young People of the Church," which was intensely interesting. Much 
enthusiasm was shown, and many excellent ideas were brought out. 

We were delighted to have our beloved President, Miss Rena Clark, 
with us, who spoke on the "Work Among the Deaf at Erwin." 

Reverend Mr. Lawrence, of Chapel Hill, closed the meeting with 
prayer. 

The week following this meeting. Mrs. Taber visited all the 
branches in this District, except one. 

It is a pleasure to serve a District, which has such efBcient and 
conscientious members. 

Martha F. Shaxxoxhouse, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF GUELFORD 

In the District of Guilford, the two meetings for the year were 
quite enthusiastic and inspiring. 

In spite of conditions we had a good year. All reports were splen- 
did and showed real love and genuine sacrifice for the work of our 
Lord. 

Each branch reported great activity in Christian Social Service 
Work. The calls have been many and the responses have been 
generous. 

Along educational lines, the District, from the smallest branch to 
the largest, has made diligent effort to be enlightened. 

The Spring Meeting was held in Burlington with an attendance 
of over one hundred. Miss Elizabeth Gordon spoke on "A Witness to 
Youth" and presented Miss Jettie Odell, a member of the Y. P. S. L. 
of Spray, who told in a most attractive way of the work done in her 
home town. She has twice won the Bishop's Cup. 

Rev. J. A. Yaehe, of Greensboro, was the principal speaker. His 
subject "Our Individual Relation to the Program of the Church" 
showed that we should crave the privilege of sharing in the Church's 
Program. 

The Fall Meeting was held at St. Andrew's Mission, Rockingham 
County. The attendance was splendid and all felt it a real privilege 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 37 

to be guests for the day of our home missionary, Miss Lillie Hill, and 
her faithful band of co-workers. 

Rev. Milton A. Barber, rector of Christ Church, Raleigh, ex- 
plained in detail the Forward Movement and urged all present to 
realize the necessity for sacrifice in order to make pledges for the 
work of the Church. He said that out of gratitude to God, giving 
should be a sacramental thing. 

Mrs. D. D. Taber, National Field Worker, in a very helpful talk 
presented some new ideas with regard to problems which confront 
members of the Auxiliary. 

During the past year the Recruiting Secretary reported that three 
young people have offered themselves for life service : Miss Almeria 
Gordon of Spray, Miss Sadie Robeson who is now at Valle Crucis 
and Wade Webb who is at the Thompson Orphanage. Miss Robeson 
and Miss Webb are both from St. Andrew's Mission, Rockingham 
County. 

I think the Woman's Auxiliary in the District of Guilford has a 
broad conception of what the Church stands for in the world and a 
full realization of its obligations and responsibilities. 

Mrs. C. E. Anderson, Chairman. 

DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

The Spring Meeting of the Forsyth-Rowan Division of the Woman's 
Auxiliary was held at Good Shepherd Church at Cooleemee, April 19, 
1932. Rev. Robert E. Gribben of Winston-Salem spoke on the general 
work of the church. 

The Fall Meeting was held at St. Paul's Church at Winston-Salem, 
October 26, 1932. Miss Rena H. Clark, President of the Diocesan 
Auxiliary, was speaker for the day. Mrs. D. D. Taber, Field Secre- 
tary of the National Council, discussed at length the work of the 
Woman's Auxiliary, and announced an institute to be held at St. 
Luke's, Salisbury, in November to make plans for the study of the 
American Indian. Special work of the Social Service Committee, 
which is the scholarship at Valle Crucis School was voted to be con- 
tinued and a letter from the holder of the scholarship, Marjory Wil- 
liamson, of Winston-Salem, was read. Social Service needs have been 
met in a very large measure. 

Miss Ruth Hairston, Recruiting Secretary, reported a volunteer 
for missionary work at Philadelphia Training School, Miss Ethel 
Byerly, of Cooleemee. She is there as the result of her Summer 
Volunteer work. 

The Institute held at Salisbury with Mrs. Taber as leader in No- 
vember had a large attendance from the entire District. Very inter- 
esting plans were worked out in detail for the study groups. 

Attendance at District meetings is exceptional, eleven branches be- 
ing represented at the Fall Meeting and twelve of the fourteen en- 
rolled branches in the District being represented in the Spring. 

This closes ten years of the District organization. The District 
started with ten branches, two of which, St. Joseph's at Spencer and 
Ascension at China Grove, later ceased to exist. There are now four- 
teen active branches. 

Mrs. Carroll Spencer, Chairman. 



38 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The usual Spring and Fall meetings of the Mecklenburg District 
of the Woman's Auxiliary were held, one at St. Mark's Mission in 
Mecklenburg County, the other at St. Martin's Parish, Charlotte. 
Both were well attended. 

The most outstanding thing of interest in the District for 1932 
was the help given by Mrs. Taber, of the National Field Department. 
Her presentation of the work of the Auxiliary at the Fall Meeting 
was both practical and inspiring. She visited most of the branches 
in the District and offered helpful suggestions in solving many prob- 
lems. One branch has made its objective for 1932 the unity of all 
the women's organizations in the Parish, if not in name, in spirit and 
interest. A general meeting of all the women has been held once a 
month which has been very helpful. 

A greater interest has been shown in the United Thank Offering. 
Requests have come from branches and individuals for the Blue 
Boxes. Although the offering may not have been as large, it repre- 
sents a larger number of individuals united in thanking Almighty 
God for their daily blessings. 

The branches have responded well in the Box Supply Work. With 
the exception of one, all did sewing, many pledging money in addi- 
tion. Valuable boxes of clothing, both new and second-hand, were 
sent out. 

Religious Education in the District has been stressed for the past 
two years. The Educational Secretary, Mrs. Rosborough, visited all 
the branches, offering suggestions and help in promoting the study 
classes. 

During 1932 the needs for Social Service have been very great and 
the individual branches have been active in meeting them. 

At the Fall Meeting Mrs. F. H. Dillon, of Monroe, was elected 

Prayer Partner Custodian to succeed Mrs. G. Robin Brem, Charlotte, 

who had served three years, and Mrs. Edward Livesay, Charlotte, 

. was elected Social Service Secretary to succeed Mrs. D. A. Gammage 

who resigned. 

Mrs. C. L. Rowe, Chairman, 

DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

The Richmond District now has five Auxiliary branches instead 
of four, Southern Pines' splendid Guild having recently organized 
as a branch of the Woman's Auxiliary. Two District meetings were 
held in 1932. All branches are on the Honor Roll and there seems to 
be increasing understanding of the Auxiliary's place in the Church 
and a desire to cooperate in all phases of the work. 

At the Spring Meeting in Southern Pines reports were heard from 
District officers. The Prayer Partner reported $9.35 was made from 
the District sale of linen from St. Andrew's School in Porto Rico 
and this amount was sent to Miss Mildred Hayes for use in carrying 
on her work. The Spring U. T. O. was larger than the Fall offering. 
The Supply Secretary had a fine report, all branches having had 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 39 

programs on this work as well as having paid pledges, done sewing 
or cutting and made donations of second-hand clothing. Also a child 
at Thompson Orphanage is clothed by each branch. The Recruiting 
Secretary gave a report of the Church's work at Chapel Hill and 
N. C. C. W. and of the Student Volunteer movement which is one 
of the splendid results of this work. A donation was made from the 
District for the Student Volunteer work. The Educational Secretary 
reported study classes held by all branches on Building a Christian 
Nation. Two branches had programs on the live major topics dis- 
cussed at General Convention, and three branches have had regular 
monthly programs. There was much discussion of Young People's 
work which resulted in sending a representative to Kanuga for 
summer conference, that we might have a capable leader of young 
people in the District. An interesting and beneficial review of the 
book, Building a Christian Nation, was given by branch Educational 
Secretaries. Rev. F. Craighill Brown gave a delightful informal talk 
on race relations basing his conclusions on his experience with the 
Orientals in China and with the Negroes in the South. Mrs. Hartzell 
told about the Golden Jubilee Convention of the Woman's Auxiliary 
and Miss Easdale Shaw made an appeal for Church women to send 
their daughters to Saint Mary's. 

At the Fall Meeting in Rockingham, officers outlined the work for 
the coming year. Rev. Frederick Drane spoke on the Forward Move- 
ment, emphasizing the crisis in the missionary work of the Church 
and beseeching Church people to have sympathetic understanding of 
needs and problems at home and abroad. The special feature of the 
day was the round table discussion of Auxiliary problems conducted 
by Mrs. D. D. Taber. Arrangements were made for her to visit each 
branch in the District during December. Mrs. Taber made a tribute 
to Saint Mary's School calling attention to the fine women present 
who had been educated there. Mrs. Baxter Moore emphasized the 
need of education in every department of our work. Miss Rena Clark 
made the closing talk leaving us with a feeling of inspiration and 
the desire to make renewed efforts in the work of extending Christ's 
Kingdom on earth. 

Mrs. K. M. Hardison, Retiring Chairman. 



40 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 



COMMITTEE REPORTS 



REPORT OF RECRUITING COMMITTEE 

Year by year, I feel that we, as an Auxiliary, are learning more 
and more just what Recruiting means : not only interesting others in 
Missions but letting the word Recruit enter into our lives and make 
of us more devoted Christians, giving ourselves to the work of Christ. 

Not a branch in the Diocese but has tried to do something along 
this line during the past year and some reports sent to me by District 
Recruiting Secretaries have been most gratifying. 

I would give special mention to the District of Guilford and the 
District of Orange whose reports are outstanding. Spray and Leaks- 
ville have several young Recruits in Home Mission work, giving their 
time and talents : Sadie Robertson and Annie Wilson both teaching 
in Prison Camps among other things. Almeria Gordon is now at 
Saint Mary's School, but expects to do Mission work. Wade Webb 
is in training at Mt. Sinai in the order of St. Joseph's. Edwin 
Bethea of Reidsville, a student at Virginia Theological Seminary, 
served most acceptably at St. Thomas, Reidsville, last summer. The 
Church of the Epiphany started and equipped a Community House at 
Flint Hill, St. Luke's Mission. This District sent a number of young 
people to the Camps. 

The District of Orange reports four young men studying for the 
ministry : Matthew George, Henry Johnston, Jr., Alfred Lawrence 
of Chapel Hill, also E. J. Craft of Durham. Martha Dabney Jones 
is a U. T. O. worker among young people in Disti'ict of East Oregon 
under Bishop Remington. 

The District of Granville reports two young men now studying for 
the ministry, Benjamin Brodie and Mr. Sturgis. 

The District of Forsyth-Rowan is much interested in Ethel Louise 
Byerly of Cooleemee, who is in training in Philadelphia for a full 
time Church worker. She is most enthusiastic about her work. This 
District gives a $200.00 Scholarship at Valle Cruris School. 

Almost all of the branches sent one or more boys and girls to the 
Summer Conferences or Camps, either Lake Kanuga or to Vade 
Mecum. 

The Summer Volunteer Work was again most successful, two girls 
from Chapel Hill went to Penland School, where their work was so 
much appreciated that they have asked for their return this summer. 
Four went to Amhurst, Va., with Miss Brightsie Savage, who came 
to N. C. C. W. in Greensboro, selected them and paid most of their 
expenses. Two went to Dante, Va., where such efficient work was 
done the year before. All of this was done at a smaller cost than 
any previous year. The Committee is indebted to Mrs. Challen and 
Mrs. Lawrence for their help in carrying out these arrangements. 
We very much hope that this work will be continued, as we have seen 
valuable results from it in the short time that it has been carried on. 

As Chairman of the Recruiting Committee, I wish to say that the 
branches have cooperated most loyally in this phase of Auxiliary 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 

Work, for which I wish to express ruy sincere thanks. It has made 
my duties a pleasure, and I bespeak for my successor the same hearty 
support. 

One suggestion I would like to make to all leaders of young people, 
and that is to create an interest among our girls in our own Church 
School, Saint Mary's. We feel that the girls will receive inspiration 
there that will lead them into the love of work for Christ. 

Saint Mary's House in Greensboro has done much to lead our 
young women into Church Work and it also needs our interest and 
support. 

In these days of stress — our Department of Missions is calling for 
our best, persons of highest quality, fitness and tested ability, espe- 
cially for Nurses and Teachers, in the hope that a greater day of 
Missions is about to dawn. The way of the future of Missions can 
only be the way of the best. May we pray earnestly that we may 
share with others, the gifts with which we have been so richly 
blessed. 

Faithfully yours, 

Camille Holt Hunt, 
Chairman of Recruiting Committee. 

PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

The Diocese of North Carolina seems to be realizing more the im- 
portance of having special prayers for our Prayer Partners, those who 
toil for us in far off places. All Parishes in the Districts pray for 
their respective Partners and send letters and cards and in many 
places useful gifts. All of these things are greatly appreciated by 
the recipients. Let us not grow weary in well doing but continue to 
encourage and brighten the work our Prayer Partners are doing. 

Claudia J. E. Powe, Chairman. 

PROMOTION OF YOUNG PEOPLES WORK 

The Committee on Promotion of Young Peoples' Work has met 
with a most encouraging response from the women of the Diocese 
in the past year. Many have interested themselves in young people's 
activities, becoming counselors to the Young People's Service League, 
the Girl's Friendly Society, and other organizations of the Church's 
youth. 

The services of the Woman's Auxiliary were offered to the Dio- 
cesan Y. P. S. L. through its president and through the Rev. Dan 
Allen, advisor to the organization. 

During the year 1932-33, the number of Y. P. S. L. chapters has 
grown from 38 to 46, under the impetus of the interest taken by the 
Auxiliary. Of this number, three were dormant Leagues revived, 
and five were new Leagues. 

This is a fine beginning but it must not be the end ! Many Leagues 
are still in need of an encouraging word or helping hand from an 
older group. Even where there is a flourishing League, there may 
be too little communication between the young people and the women 



42 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 

of the Church. A spirit of interest, of interdependence between 
Church organizations, is an Auxiliary ideal. 

Our scope of responsibility has been widened during the past year. 
No longer have we a "Committee for the Promotion of the Young 
Peoples' Service League" but of "Young People's Work," which means 
that we must interest ourselves in all the activities of the young 
people, and strive to promote them by every means in our power. 

Mrs. Pembroke Nash, Chairman. 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY OF THE COLORED CONVOCATION 

Madam President : 

There are nineteen missions in the Colored Convocation. Fifteen 
of these have, or have had, a branch of the Auxiliary. There are six 
colored priests and one catechist to serve these nineteen missions. 
In most of these stations you have a priest and a branch of the 
Auxiliary. This furnishes a unique opportunity for you to "come 
over into Macedonia and help us." 

Our Diocesan Branch has the regulation organization : President, 
Vice-President, Secretary. Treasurer, Educational Secretary, Social 
Service Secretary, Box Secretary, and U. T. O. Custodian. We have 
Annual Meetings and make annual reports to the National Branch. 
We do not have District Meetings. 

Our meeting last year was scheduled for Charlotte but Charlotte 
wrote that they could not take the Auxiliary on account of the de- 
pression. The prospects for a meeting this year are not favorable. 

We had hopes of having Miss Brown to visit the branches this 
year but there is too little hope of reasonable follow-up work to 
warrant these visits as yet in this present crisis. 

The main handicap in this phase of the church work, as it is in 
many others, is the lack of available leaders in the field. There are 
leaders in our midst who are not available and I think it is the duty 
of every Diocesan officer to find these leaders and give them the 
opportunity to do their bit. 

I think that the programs of both Diocesan Branches should be 
inter-racial. Friction can be avoided by understanding, church loyalty, 
and the development of spiritual fellowship. 

Madam President, I want to thank you for your splendid spirit of 
cooperation that you have shown during your term of office. I want 
to thank the Auxiliary as a whole for your continual interest in my 
daughter at Bishop Tuttle. I know that it will please you to know 
that she is to be the valedictorian of her class and was unanimously 
chosen by the faculty as the honor student and commencement 
speaker. 

Asking that the Holy Spirit will save us from all error, ignorance, 
pride and prejudice and that our Heavenly Father may so direct, 
govern, and sanctify our endeavors that they may reach as far as 
man is found and praying that we may all labor more abundantly 
to make known the blessed privilege we have in attaining eternal 
life, I am, 

Respectfully, 

(Mrs.) M. M. Weston. President.

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

I am glad to present this report for the C. P. C, which in some 
items shows an increase in the work from the previous year : 

Current Periodicals sent regularly 50 

Number of donors of above Periodicals 16 

Bibles and Testaments 7 

Prayer Books and Hymnals 18 

Books Theological and Secular 9 

Odd Magazines and Papers 22,345 

Christmas and Easter Cards 241 

Games and Scrap Books 13 

Fewer Bibles, Prayer Books and Hymnals have been given and 
National Headquarters makes a special plea for these. The needs 
for them are made known not only by teachers and evangelical 
workers, but by many volunteer workers, who find in their own 
neighborhood, persons eager to own a Bible or Prayer Book. The 
objectives for the work are : 

I. Forward your best magazines regularly and promptly. 
II. Pass on good books while they are new. 

III. At Christmas and Easter buy one or two extra cards for some 
Mission. 

IV. Write friendly letters to those to whom you send. 
V. Make some regular gift in money. 

VI. Pray for the work, especially on the first Sunday in May. 

This work is one of greatest importance and with earnest endeavor 
it need not be affected by the financial difficulties that so handicap 
other departments of our work. 

Anna M. Hinson, Chairman. 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

In making my final report as your representative on the Women's 
Legislative Council of the State, space permits only the following 
brief summary : 

Through a study of prison conditions, of farm tenancy, of our wel- 
fare institutions, and our juvenile court system, of the conditions 
under which women and children work in mills, etc., the Auxiliary 
was led to ask for representation on the Women's Legislative Council 
in order to help create better social conditions in our State. We have 
thus been enabled to have a share in enacting into law measures for 
the promotion of prison reforms, Mothers' Aid, greatly improved con- 
ditions for women and children working in mills, laundries, restau- 
rants, and mercantile houses ; better marriage laws ; the care of de- 
pendent, defective, and delinquent children of both races ; and most 
important of all, perhaps, through our efforts this year the Depart- 
ment of Public Welfare has been preserved to the State — a depart- 
ment which, under the inspired vision of Mrs. Kate Burr Johnson, 
attained to a position of eminence among such welfare agencies 



44 FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL REPORT 

throughout the country, but whose very existence was at stake during 
the present session of the Legislature. This awakening of public 
sentiment towards our social problems has been accomplished by the 
unremitting and intelligent work of the women who constitute the 
Legislative Council. Their vision of the "new earth, wherein shall 
dwell righteousness"' is far from realized, but they will continue 
to work for it with might and main ; and now that the Church in 
our Diocese, through its Executive Council, has in the past year 
taken similar action to that of the Auxiliary by affiliation with the 
N. C. Council of Social Agencies, we may hope for an added impetus 
towards the fulfillment of Our Lord's prayer that God's kingdom 
would come upon earth. 

Emilie R. Holmes, Chairman, 
Committee on Women's Legislative Council. 

WORK WITH THE ISOLATED 

In giving this final account of my stewardship as Chairman of 
Work with the Isolated, I am keenly mindful of the fact that much 
has been omitted that should have been done. This, however, leaves 
a free field for my successor. 

I have visited the sick, given food, clothing, medicine and literature 
where I found they were needed. Five children have been presented 
for baptism. The work, as you see, is inseparably interwoven with 
other departments of our Auxiliary service. 

I have not been successful in establishing Home Study Classes, so 
highly recommended by the Council, though I am convinced that 
educational work with the Isolated is by far the most important and 
enduring which can be done. 

I place particular emphasis upon the work, for and by the Church 
at Valle Crucis. For three years we have had Nina Miller, one of 
our isolated girls, in this school. Each year she has been awarded a 
scholarship which has defrayed the cost of her board and tuition. 
Her other necessary expenses have been met by generous donations 
of cash and clothing made by parishes and individuals in this and in 
the Western Diocese. It would have been impossible to keep Nina 
at Valle Crucis but for the whole-hearted cooperation of Mr. Kent 
and of Rev. Lane Barton of Flint, Michigan. 

I have personal assurances from Mr. Kent, Miss Graves and Mrs. 
Starnes that Nina is one of the finest girls ever entrusted to them. 
I hope most sincerely that means will be found to enable her to com- 
plete her course and graduate next year. I wish that each person 
interested in this work might see and know this girl as I do. You 
could never regret any sacrifices made to assist her. 

You realize, I am sure, that food, clothing, medicines and literature, 
necessary as they are, are purely temporal things, but to have a share 
in the development of body, mind and spirit of "one of these, His 
little ones," is to share in the realm of things eternal. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mary Settle Sharpe, Chairman.

Jfragera 

"And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me." 

Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved; through Thy Merits and mercies, 
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever 
One God, world without end. Amen. 

Auxiliary Prayer 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thank- 
ful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all Nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this 
for His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

A Prayer for the Diocese 

O God, whose love reacheth unto the ends of the world, Bless, 
we pray Thee, this Diocese; and grant that all who share its 
benefits may show forth Thy glory by deeds and by gifts for the 
spread of Thy kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons 
of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties com- 
mitted to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace 
and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten 
their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless 
all who have contributed to this institution, and raise up, we 
pray Thee, a never-failing succession of benefactors whose names 
may be perpetuated through ail generations as a blessed memory, 
and their good deeds be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with 
favor, we beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, 
especially in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for 
the poor, the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their 
burdens with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, 
our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose 
flocks are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the 
hope of a better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep in 
scattered places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; Who 
art with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world 
without end. Amen. 

For Religious Education 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, 
the Truth and the Life, Grant that we, looking unto Him may set 
forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
ch'ldren, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Social Service 

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, 
making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest, 
who dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and 
joy of the citizens of that holy city. Amen. 

For the Advance Work 

O Thou who didst promise Thy presence and power to those 
who go forth in Thy name, Stir up the loyalty and the love of 
Thy Church to supply the pressing needs of those who, as our 
representatives, proclaim Thy message of salvation, both at home 
and abroad. Accept our gifts and prosper our undertaking, to 
the glory of Thy name and the blessing of Thy children; who 
with the Father and the Holy Spirit art worshipped and glorified, 
now and forever. Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace 
for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the Field, and 
draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts of 
all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou has given to them. 
Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer 
and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy 
Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity 
of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; to those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of 
every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 

workers in Thy service : bless we pray Thee Thy servent 

and prosper her in the work to which Thou has called her. Grant 
her sufficient wisdom for every task, Thy gracious help in time of 
trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and the power to 
accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name and for Thy 
glory; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." Amen. 

Thanksgiving 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee humble 
thanks for all the great things Thou has done and are doing for 
the children of men; for the opening of heathen lands to the light 
of Thy truth; for making paths into the deep waters and highways 
in the desert; for knitting nation to nation in the bond of fellow- 
ship, and for the planting of Thy Church in all the earth. O 
merciful Father, in whom the whole family is named, fill full our 
hearts with grateful love for this Thy goodness, granting grace 
henceforth to serve Thee better and more perfectly to know Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Re-dedication 

Realizing that only through personal dedication to Jesus Christ, 
our Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human endeavors, 
we re-dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
to making the strength of our deeds the measure of our Faith; 
to a sincere and simple effort in our daily living to follow with 
humility the example of our Saviour.

was to lead the noon meditations and prayers, Bishop 
Penick made a short talk and read appropriate prayers. 

Mrs. W. M. Rosborough then presented to the meeting, 
in a stirring manner, the facts concerning the present finan- 
cial crisis in the missionary work of the Church, quoting 
figures given to her by the Treasurer of the National Coun- 
cil, Dr. Lewis B. Franklin, and the Diocesan Treasurer for 
the Church Program, Mr. J. Renwicke Wilkes. These fig- 



16 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 

ures showed the deficit for the year 1933 and anticipated 
deficit for 1934 to be $1,000,000.00. 

The President then opened the meeting to general dis- 
cussion. Several suggestions were offered, followed by an 
appeal made by Bishop Penick to the members of the Aux- 
iliary to spread the information concerning conditions wher- 
ever and whenever possible. 

Bishop Penick also presented Mr. George C. Pollard, 
head of the parochial schools in Henderson and Louisburg, 
who told of the possible hardships connected with the clos- 
ing of the Negro schools there. 

Just before the meeting adjourned for lunch, the Presi- 
dent presented to the Bishop a new set of vestments, with 
the love and gratitude of the Auxiliary. The gift was ac- 
cepted by Bishop Penick with a few well chosen words of 
appreciation. 

At 1 :3o the meeting was adjourned for lunch, being 
opened again at 2:30 with report by the Credentials Com-

tional Secretary; Mrs. Howard Hartzell, Secretary for Chris- 
tian Social Service, and Mrs. Baxter Moore as member on 
the Diocesan Executive Board.

General Convention in Atlantic City, in October, 1934, a 
motion was made that rules be suspended and the President 
and United Thank Offering Custodian be elected unanimous- 
ly as two of the five delegates. This motion was seconded 
and carried. The other delegates elected were: Miss Rena 
Clark, Mrs. Baxter Moore and Mrs. Theodore Partrick, Jr.

season, the foundation and essential parts of the building 
to be erected at a cost of $5,000, given by the Winston 
Foundation. He urged attendance at the camps for young 
people and for the Auxiliary. 

Mrs. Cruikshank then made an appeal for St. Mary's 
School, asking for co-operation on the part of the .Aux- 
iliary members in interesting girls. She reported conditions 
at present as favorable and prospects good. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 17

Mary's School, introduced Miss Katherine Duff, Alumnae 
Secretary, who told of several ways in which the members 
of the Auxiliary could help St. Mary's, appealing especially 
to the many members of the alumnae in the meeting. 

At 5 o'clock the meeting was adjourned. 

Evening Service was held at 8 p. m., the sermon being 
preached by the Rt. Rev. Thomas C. Darst, Bishop of the 
Diocese of East Carolina. Bishop Darst made a stirring 
appeal to the women of the Auxiliary to take up the fight 
for victory over the many grave dangers threatening the 
Church and Christianity today.

Communion was held by Bishop Penick and the Rector,

ing. Prayers were offered in memory of those members

Annual Meeting. 

The meeting convened at 9:45 with opening prayers by 
the Rev. John Long Jackson. 

Mrs. Hartzell having declined the office of the Secretary 
for Christian Social Service, over long distance phone, it 
was necessary to have another election. Mrs. C. E. An- 
derson was duly elected to fill that office. 

The Rev. W. H. Wheeler, Superintendent of the Thomp- 
son Orphanage, made a short talk about that institution, 
reporting 105 children, about evenly divided into boys and 
girls. He said they all seemed well and happy. He ap- 
pealed for continuance of collection of Octagon Soap wrap- 
pers to pay for part time service of a much needed case 
worker. 

A resolution was passed that the Convention approve 
the plan proposed by Mr. Wheeler to employ a case worker 
for part time, and pledged its support of the object in the 
sum of $100 for this year. 



18 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 

Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon, Director of the Auxiliary Camp at 
Vade Mecum, told of the plans for the summer conference, 
and urged co-operation by attendance, and by the appoint- 
ment of someone in each branch to promote the interests 
of all the periods of the summer program, especially the 
Auxiliary Camp. She also spoke of Auxiliary Day, being 
Tuesday, August 14th. 

The President reported the illness of a former President, 
Miss Kate Cheshire, and a resolution was passed to have a 
message expressing love and interest on the part of this 
meeting sent to her. 

On a recommendation made by Bishop Penick, a motion 
was passed that the President be authorized to appoint Mrs. 
F. H. U. Edwards, of Oxford, to be the convener of the 
Negro branches of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese, 
to be organized in a manner corresponding with the eight 
other Districts of the Diocese. The President took this 
action immediately. 

Miss Clara J. Neely, retired missionary to Japan, and the 
tirst United Thank Offering worker sent to the field, spoke 
to the meeting of the wonderful value of the U. T. O., and 
the importance of the small individual gifts making up the 
whole. She told of the changes taking place during recent 
years in Japan and of the establishment of native Church 
organization, with the influence of Christianity steadily 
permeating the Japanese life. She told how the work 
begun by the Christian Churches has been followed and 
enlarged by government and other agencies. . The end 
of Miss Neely's talk was a touching incident of work among 
the lepers and of their self-denial in going without food in 
order to contribute to the U. T. O. fund. 

Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon, Chairman of the Committee on 
Findings from the Discussion, made the following report: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON FINDINGS FROM THE 
DISCUSSION 

Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon, Chairman. 

(1) Pledges are lower this year than previously. 

(2) Does the Missionary spirit seem to have lost chief place in 
the plans of the Service Leagues? 

(3) Recommendation by the Bishop that no specific plans be 
made, but that co-operation be with the Diocesan plans. 

(4) That the report of conditions made by Mrs. Rosborough 
be mimeographed and sent to each branch and delegate. 

(5) That each Auxiliary member inform herself as to her own 
parish quota and see how much has been paid. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 19 



(6) That parishes have two treasurers, one for the parish 
funds and one for funds for Church's program, latter to be paid 
monthly. 

(7) That the Auxiliary officers ask the Clergy to let them meet 
with the Vestry, and inform them of the facts stated by Mrs. 
Rosborough. 

(8) That delegates from this meeting meet with the delegates 
to annual Diocesan Convention and arrange a congregational 
meeting setting forth these facts and arranging some plans to be 
brought up at the Diocesan Convention. 

All who would pledge themselves to follow these recom- 
mendations were asked to rise. 

The following resolution, offered by Mrs. Gordon, was 
adopted: 

"The Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina, as- 
sembled in Annual Meeting in Oxford, April 10th and 11th, having 
considered with great concern the financial situation existing in 
the National Church, wish to express their anxious interest in the 
Regional Conference meeting in Raleigh, April 12th and 13th, and 
their co-operation in whatever plan may grow out of this Con- 
ference and be adopted by the Diocesan Convention to be held in 
St. Martin's Church, Charlotte, May 9th and 10th." 

Noonday prayers and meditations were then offered by 
Mrs. Gordon. 

The United Thank Offering presented at this meeting 
was announced as being $2,176.73. 

The Custodian made an earnest plea that the blue boxes 
be kept where the owners may see them constantly. 

The following resolutions were recommended by the 
Committee on Resolutions, and duly adopted. 

I. That the $815.00 pledged to the Advance Work be diverted 
to the financial crisis of the deficit of $1,000,000 existing in the 
National Church and an effort be made to increase this amount 
to $1,000. 

II. That it is the sense of this Convention of the Woman's 
Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina that the vestries of 
all parishes and the officers of all missions be requested to adopt 
and maintain the financial policy of giving priority to payments 
on their missionary obligations. 

III. That the financial budget of the Woman's Auxiliary be 
submitted to the Executive Board for revision, the action of the 
Board in this matter to be binding upon the Auxiliary. 

The following recommendations made by the President, 
were duly adopted by the meeting: 

(1) That each branch endeavor to send at least one member 
to the Vade Mecum Conference. 

(2) That the Young People's Work (Church Schools and 
Y. P. S. L.) be made a department with a special Secretary. 

Sadie T. Waiters, Secretary. 



20 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 

The Convention was asked to stand for a moment in 
recognition and honor of an older member, Mrs. S. P. Ar- 
rington. 

The following report of the Courtesy Committee was 
adopted: 

The Courtesy Committee, in behalf of the Woman's Auxiliary, 
wish to express their appreciation to all who have contributed to 
the pleasure and comfort of the meeting. In particular they wish 
to thank the members of the parish, friends of other communions, 
who have opened their homes to the visitors so graciously; the 
ladies of the Methodist Church for the delicious luncheons, and the 
organist and choir of St. Stephen's Church, who have added to 
the beauty and spiritual uplift of the service. 

They specially want to thank the Rector for his gracious wel- 
come and assistance. 

They leave Oxford filled with pleasant memories and gratitude 
to all. 

The minutes of this meeting were read and approved, 
and the new officers duly installed, and, all business having 
been transacted, Bishop Penick pronounced the benediction 
and the Fifty-second Annual Meeting of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary of the Diocese of North Carolina was adjourned. 

Sadie Thomas Watters, Secretary. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 21 

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS' TO THE CONVENTION OF 1934 

Dear Members of the Auxiliary and Friends: 

Just a year ago you called me to a place of privilege as 
your President, and today 1 have come to thank you for all 
the joy you have given me. It has been my pleasure to 
attend fourteen District meetings held in co-operation with 
the Field Department of the Diocese, the Summer Confer- 
ences at Kanuga and Vade Mecum, the meeting of the Pro- 
vincial Synod at Montgomery, Ala., and the crowning privi- 
lege of the year was being present with many others from 
our Diocese at the planting of the Memorial Tree for Bishop 
Cheshire in The Cathedral close to Washington, D. C. 
Two meetings of the Executive Board have been held. 

A wonderful spiritual privilege was ours in the Day for 
Prayer held on Armistice Day of last year. It has been 
impossible to evaluate this remarkable experience, but the 
quiet peace that came in the silent Church as each woman 
kept her "Hour of Prayer" will ever be a sacred memory. 

The four Educational Institutes held by Mrs. W. J. Gor- 
don have received universal commendation, and all have 
been inspired and helped by them. 

Mrs. R. B. Davis, who consented to finish out the unex- 
pired Treasurer's term, moved out of the Diocese, which 
made it necessary for her to resign. Mrs. Ross Sigmon, of 
Salisbury, has assumed the responsibility of Treasurer and 
has carried on the finances in a splendid way. 

The reports you have sent in all emphasize one great 
need and that is leadership. I beg of you to send your 
women to Summer Conferences where they can train for 
that they most need. 

We are meeting in a time when our beloved Church is 
facing the greatest financial crisis in her history and I urge 
that we lay this seriously to heart. May it be said of us as 
it is said of Mrs. Roosevelt, "She cares so much that she 
does something about it." 

Our records give us a membership of 2,434 women. My 
friends, there isn't anything that many women can't do if 
they prayerfully try, and the irreparable disaster our 
Church is facing makes it necessary for our women to stand 
up and be counted. 

We all realize that this is a difficult time in which to make 
an appeal for special gifts; but for love giving is never 
difficult. 

The issue facing is not that of adequate support but of 
the necessity of closing stations that it has taken years to 



22 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 

establish, work that has been built up through the heroic 
devotion and sacrifice of countless men and women. 1 am 
sure there is not a woman in the ranks of the Auxiliary who 
will not gladly make some sacrifice, if need be, to enable 
her to help in this time of need. 

Last year is past and we can do nothing more about it, 
but this year is before us and I recommend for your consid- 
eration the following objectives: 

(1) That we consider changing the time of the Annual Meet- 
ing to September. 

(2) That we revise our budget, having two General Church 
projects, two Diocesan projects, Bishop's Purse, Central Fund and 
Incidentals. 

(3) That each Branch send at least one member to the Vade 
Mecum Conference. 

(4) That we make Young People's Work (by which I mean 
Church Schools and Y. P. S. L.) a Department with a special 
Chairman. 

(5) That in view of the irreparable disaster that is facing the 
Missionary Work of the whole Church that we make some per- 
sonal sacrifice and take some action to help immediately in this 
time of need. 

I do not ask that you make all these changes at once, 
perhaps you may not approve of some of them at all. _ I 
only ask that you consider them and I know that you will 
decide for the best. Perhaps some of them seem strange 
and different. Let us remember we are living in a new 
world — the old one has passed away and we must meet new 
conditions with new methods, and new ideas. It will take 
new lives, high lives, lives of hope and purpose. 

In answering our Presiding Bishop's call to a Church- 
wide Endeavor, might we not through such a program find 
God's purpose for our lives and our Auxiliary in this Dio- 
cese? 

You remember one day when David was sore pressed 
and weary he said to some friends that he longed for a drink 
of water from the well at Bethlehem, these friends at the 
risk of their lives brought back to him a cup of water from 
the home of his boyhood. David was so deeply touched by 
their love that he could not drink the water. It had been 
made sacred by their sacrifice, so he poured it out into the 
Lord, and centuries later a woman seeing our Saviour's lone- 
liness and with a woman's instinct feeling that tragedy 
loomed before Him, showed her sympathy and adoration 
by breaking her most precious treasure, pouring the spike- 
nard on His head. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 23 

Oh, women, if we could only give what the water of 
Bethlehem meant to David and what the breaking of the 
Alabaster box meant to Jesus! Isn't this a time that we can 
pour out something too sacred for ourselves unto the Lord 
for "Christ the Son of God has sent us unto distant lands. 
Ours the ordination of the pierced hands." 

Emma J. Hall.

24 FIFTY-SEOOND ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF SUPPLY DEPARTMENT FOR 1933 

We all realize that the year 1933 was a most difficult one. For 
this reason it is doubly gratifying to report that in the Supply 
Department there has been a steady growth and substantial in- 
crease of interest. While the needs have been more pressing than 
ever before, the Auxiliary women of this Diocese have fully met 
them, showing such willingness and efficiency that we have been 
able to almost double our quota. We were allotted eight mission 
fields to which to send boxes. We volunteered for five additional 
ones — all this due to your hearty support and co-operation. The 
total value of the boxes for 1933 was $5,108.44. 

Not only is the material side growing, but the Spiritual as well, 
so that the Supply Department has become a potent missionary 
force, contributing to the educational and ethical sides of our 
Parishes. These values might be summed up in the beautiful 
words of a missionary's wife on receiving a personal box one day 
in December. 

"Wise Men brought gifts so long ago; 

Wise Women now — today — 
Send gifts to those who follow Him; 

Who in a manger lay." 

Boxes to Diocesan Missions $3,092.69 

Boxes to General Missions 2,012.19 

Total $5,104.88 

Number of garments cut and made 574, valued at $335.70, 

included in total given above. 
Number of Branches participating, 75. 
Number of meetings held by Branches, 55. 

On hand January 1, 1933 $ 53.73 

Received from Pledges, 1933 773.60 

Total receipts $ 827.33

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 25 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 1933 

There has been a marked gain in Christian Social Service in our 
Diocese during the year just ended. 

Our report proves that much has been effected besides material 
relief. 

Three outstanding achievements are: 

More use of Parish Houses for Adults and Young People. Bet- 
ter Programs on Christian Social Service, frequently given by pro- 
fessional workers, and the great privilege we had in having Dr. 
C. Rankin Barnes give an inspiring talk to the District and Local 
Chairmen of Christian Social Service at Christ Church Parish 
House, Raleigh. 

Another noticeable work is that done in conjunction with the 
Red Cross Society. 

Various branches report special interest in work among Negroes 
and illiterates. 

We are pleased to know that the splendid prison work done by 
Miss Lilly Hill has received official recognition from the State. 

A new phase of work reported is that of the Braille work for 
the blind. 

Corinna Gant, Christian Social Service Secretary. 



REPORT OF DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY, 1933 

All but seven Branches of the Auxiliary reported some educa- 
tional work during the past year and I want to express my appre- 
ciation for the splendid co-operation of Educational Secretaries, 
especially, District Secretaries who sent out the notices about 
Auxiliary Day at Vade Mecum, made preparation for the Educa- 
tional Institutes, and assisted in getting in the annual reports, in 
addition to their District duties. 

Some Branches still only report study classes, but fifty reported 
programs planned for the year and twelve Secretaries sent me 
copies of their programs for the year. These were passed on, as 
a whole or in part, to other Branches that had asked for sug- 
gestions. 

Four Educational Institutes were held, in Charlotte, Greensboro, 
Raleigh and Tarboro, by Mrs. William J. Gordon of Spray, in 
November. The day was given to discussion: first, of educational 
plans for the Winter and practical suggestions for putting these 
plans into effect; second, to discussion of the subject for study 
classes, "Christ in the Modern World." Mrs. Gordon's presentation 
was inspiring and stimulating and the methods suggested for the 
study classes were practical, and the unusual interest in the 
classes, and the enthusiastic reports from all over the Diocese 
were the direct result of these Institutes. 

I would like to recommend, if it meets with the approval of the 
incoming Diocesan Secretary, that the District Educational Sec- 
retaries call a meeting of their Parish Secretaries in August, or 
early September, to consider the plan outlined by the Diocesan 
Secretary for the coming year, in order that they may discuss the 



26 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



subject's, reference material, and the best way to adapt to their 
particular Branches. I am suggesting this for three reasons: 
first, all Auxiliary women should think and study about the things 
for which the Auxiliary is responsible for the year, and about 
which the Church is particularly concerned; second, some 
Branches have programs that are not related to the Diocesan 
plans; and, third, if the work of the Diocesan Secretary is to be 
effective, she must depend upon her District Secretaries to carry 
out her plans. 

There were only seventeen Bible classes reported in the Diocese 
last year, and I feel certain that after we have been considering 
the need of Christian disciples in our modern world, we will make 
a greater effort to become learners indeed, from our Master, Jesus 
Christ, that we may worthily witness for Him. 

Mrs. Baxter Moore, Secretary. 



REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

(For the Year 1933) 

1932 — Spring Offering received from Mrs. A. S. Lawrence $2,224.91 

1932 — Fall Offering (previously reported) 1,960.10 

1933— Spring Offering 1,924.03 

1933— Fall Offering 1,961.34 

Interest to December 31, 1933 312.74 



Total Offering, December 31, 1933 $8,383.12 

"As Custodian of the United Thank Offering, what is your ob- 
jective?" To this question I'm perfectly sure I'd voice the dearest 
wish of myself not only, but of all who have had the blessed priv- 
ilege of so serving, by answering without hesitation: "That more 
women may know the joy of giving; that both those who give and 
those who receive may be brought to a fuller realization that the 
Thank Offering is no sentimental whim, but a vital force in bring- 
ing God's Kingdom on earth." Never losing sight of this objec- 
tive, I have sought to keep it uppermost. 

In a material way I have directed my efforts toward staying 
the yearly losses in gifts; urging each branch to do even a little 
better in the present year than in the one just past. In not hold- 
ing out the hope of reaching the amount given in the triennium 
ending in 1931, there is no note of pessimism. To work for a goal 
attainable seemed wisest. It was not reached in 1932, 'tho the 
yearly loss was lessened. In 1933 four districts showed a gain 
over the year preceding; the losses of the other four, however, 
offset the gain. Led by eight determined, faithful district custo- 
dians, the branches have caught the spirit of determination and I 
am confident 1934 will be a turning point. Our women will rec- 
ognize return of material blessings with increase of gifts. An 
encouraging note is sounded in the reports of several custodians 
that more women are having a part in the Offering. Dependent 
on our gifts at present are 112 women in continental United 
States; 73 in extra-continental U. S. and foreign fields; 41 retired; 



THE TOMAN'S AUXILIARY 27 



and 4 in training. In the diocese of North Carolina are five U. T. 
O. Workers. From the Diocese of North Carolina there arc six in 
continental U. S. and two in foreign fields. Remember them with 
your prayers as well as your gifts. 

On October 11, 1934, in Atlantic City our gifts for the three 
years will be presented. The fall Offering will have to be in on 
time to be credited on 1934. Just how near we shall come to 
reaching the amount given at the 1931 triennial depends on our 
efforts between now and October. There is no limit to our accom- 
plishment if the Thank Offering holds its true place in our hearts. 
Put the first gift first; pray earnestly that God will put it into 
the hearts of our women to "give gladly as He has given to them." 
Our "gifts and joyful service" will surely follow. 

Ruby Simms, U. T. O. Custodian.

REPORT OF AUDITORS 
February 19, 1934 

Miss Emma J. Hall, President, 

Woman's Auxiliary, Diocese of North Carolina, 

827 North Tryon Street, Charlotte, N. C. 

Dear Madam: 

As requested I have made an examination of the treasurer's 
books for the twelve months' period beginning January 1st, 1933, 
and attach hereto schedules showing moneys received during the 
year and disbursements therefrom together with the balance on 
hand at the close of the year. 

On Schedule One I have shown the total balance in each fund, 
but in these balances is included the money on deposit with the 
Page Trust Company, Raleigh, North Carolina, which is not now 
available for use. On Schedule Two you will note that these bal- 
ances have been segregated as to the amount on deposit in the 
Page Trust Company and not available for use and also the 
amount on deposit in the Wachovia Bank & Trust Company, Salis- 
bury, North Carolina, which amount represents funds now avail- 
able. 

The treasurer's books for the year 1934 will be set up showing 
the balances available in each fund and should any amount be 
realized from the Page Trust Company, they will be credited to 
the proper fund pro rata as shown by the balances on deposit in 
that bank. 

The method of keeping records is being changed to meet your 
needs more fully and so that the desired information can be more 
readily obtained. 

The report covers the work of the three treasurers for the past 
twelve months. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Thos. P. Zum Brunnen.

REPORTS OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 

DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The two meetings of the District of Edgecombe, both Spring and 
Fall, seemed to be characterized with an earnest desire to carry 
forward the aims and object of the Auxiliary — a deeper spiritu- 
ality and more personal service. We have certainly not gone back- 
ward. At the Spring meeting we held a memorial to Bishop 
Cheshire, whose presence was sorely missed, bringing, as he al- 
ways did, help and inspiration to go onward and upward. 

The District was fortunate during the Fall in having a visit 
from Mr. Tasman, who gave an enlightening talk on "Why Mis- 
sions?" 

The reports from the sixteen active Branches in our District 
&how a growth born of faith in the present and hope for the fu- 
ture, and a vision, having which, "we do not perish." 

Mrs. W. Johnston King, Chairman. 

REPORT OF GRANVILLE DISTRICT OF W. A. 

Warrenton, N. C, April 20, 1934. 

The Spring meeting of the District of Granville was held in 
Henderson in May. Mrs. W. J. Gordon gave a most inspiring 
talk on "The Meaning of Prayer," Miss Emma Hall, our new 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 



Diocesan President, was with us for the first time and her splen- 
did and appealing talk made us more determined than ever to 
carry on the work of the Auxiliary and Church beyond our pres- 
ent vision. 

The Fall meeting was held in Louisburg in October. We were 
very fortunate in having Mr. Eric Tasman of the Field Depart- 
ment, who made an address on "The Church and Her World 
Mission." Mr. I. Harding Hughes conducted a very stimulating 
open forum on "What Is the Primary Business of the Church? 
Why the Present Crisis?" Both talks made us feel our personal 
responsibility and the necessity for more spirituality in our own 
lives. They also made us realize that unless a church is mis- 
sionary it is not fulfilling our Lord's command and will soon be- 
come a Church without vigor or life. There was fine attendance 
at both of these meetings. 

Two new officers were elected at the fall meeting, U. T. O. Cus- 
todian, Mrs. Lewis Scoggin, Louisburg, and Recording Secretary, 
Miss Claudia Hunter. Mrs. Susan Webb Adams is Chairman of 
Young People's Work in this District. 

A great deal of interest has been evidenced in the Church 
camps. Warrenton alone sent fourteen people to Vade Mecum 
last summer and is hoping to send even more this year. Oxford 
was also well represented. Several women from the District at- 
tended the auxiliary camp and came back full of enthusiasm for 
the work being done there. 

We are hoping for more active and earnest work during the 
coming year. 

Mrs. W. R. Baskerville, Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF WAKE 
May 3, 1934 

At the end of the year 1933 the District of Wake lost its be- 
loved chairman in the death of Mrs. C. E. McLean. We honor her 
memory and shall endeavor to incorporate in our work the high 
ideals of faithfulness and devotion to duty for which she stood. 
May she go from strength to strength and may light perpetual 
shine upon her. 

The reports from the various branches in our District show 
an active interest in all the work of the Auxiliary. Practically 
every branch reported a planned educational program for the year 
and successful study classes or discussion groups during Lent. 
The outstanding event of the year in our educational work was 
the Institute conducted in November by Mrs. William J. Gordon, 
of Spray. This Institute was in preparation for the 1934 Study 
Classes and was splendidly attended. It was sponsored by our 
Diocesan Educational Secretary. 

The total amount of our United Thank Offering for 1933 did 
not show an increase over 1932 as we had hoped, but the interest 
in the U. T. O. is a growing thing. One branch in the district 
reported an offering from almost every member. 

The chairman of our Young People's Work reports a representa- 
tive in every branch in the District. One branch reports a coun- 
selor provided for the Young People's Service League, and another 



34 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



has served two get-to-gether suppers for the young people. Prac- 
tically every branch furnished Church School teachers. 

The report from the Supply Department shows many garments 
cut and made and a total of thirty-seven boxes sent, valued at 
$635.93, in addition to about one hundred dollars paid into the 
Diocesan Supply Department. 

During the past year the Christian Social Service Work of the 
branches is again the outstanding accomplishment of our district. 
The branch reports tell of visits to the penitentiary, the jail, the 
hospitals, the Soldiers' Home, and St. Luke's Home; gifts of flow- 
ers, fruit and scrap books to the hospitals; books, magazines and 
Christmas boxes to the prisons; food, clothing and toys to Tuttle 
Community House for the negro children; substantial help given 
sick negroes; milk for undernourished school children; food, 
clothing and Christmas cheer to many needy families; the ladies 
of St. Luke's Home taken on drives and to the movies, also the 
men from the Soldiers' Home on similar outings; teas given for 
ladies at St. Luke's, and board paid for two ladies there; a splen- 
did box sent to flood sufferers at Beaufort, a gift to Penland 
School; a football to Patterson School; children taken to clinic 
for tonsil operations and looked after, and prayer meetings held 
for the sick. Each branch clothes one or more orphans at the 
Thompson Orphanage. Surely our people were never more con- 
scious of the need for Christian Social Service as is shown in the 
wide scope of their activities in this field of our work. May we be- 
come increasingly conscious of the world's need and in the strength 
of His Holy Spirit may we rise to meet the full challenge of that 
need. 

Watson K. Partrick, Acting Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

A note of progress comes from the District of Orange. The 
District Meeting was held in the Chapel of the Cross at Chapel 
Hill, in November. All nine branches reported in an encouraging 
manner. The main address was given by Reverend I. Harding 
Hughes, and he made a stirring appeal to the church women to 
awaken to the needs of our Church. In the District of Orange, 
Christian Social Service has ceased to be a topic, it is a living 
reality. Every branch has responded to many calls locally and 
from afar. Orphans have been clothed, a girl's tuition at an in- 
dustrial school has been paid, in fact, every phase of this work 
has been represented. The supply work was outstanding. The 
cutting and sewing of garments was supplemented by the sending 
of valuable boxes of clothing. Religious Education has gone for- 
ward steadily. New leaders have given impetus to this work. 
One branch had an Education Committee instead of an Educa- 
tional Secretary. This branch had an organized class for Educa- 
tional Secretaries. In this class study books were discussed and 
programs planned before being presented to the Auxiliary. We 
are praying and working that our United Thank Offering may 
become a more vital part of every woman's life. One branch re- 
ported handling more money, one branch reported a gain in mem- 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIAEY 35 



bership, and a third branch reported a hundred per cent enroll- 
ment in the Woman's Auxiliary of the parish women. 

Intercessory Days and Corporate Communions have been ob- 
served faithfully. 

Saza Peck Wilson. 



DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

The District of Guilford held two meetings during the year 1933- 
1934, both meetings full of inspiration and enthusiasm, all de- 
partments showing much activity. 

Many members attending the Educational Institutes, and profit- 
ing by the knowledge gained, were able to give intelligent study 
to the Mission Study Book, "Christ in the Modern World." 

The Fall meeting was held with St. Andrew's Branch, Greens- 
boro, with Miss Emma Hall and the Rev. Eric M. Tasman as 
principal speakers. 

The Spring meeting was held with St. Thomas Branch, Reids- 
ville. 

Miss May Hairston, who is Guilford District Prayer Partner, 
was the principal speaker, giving a most interesting talk about 
her work in the Philippines. 

Mrs. O. L. Slayton, District Recruiting Secretary, reported the 
organization of a new branch of the Woman's Auxiliary at Spray, 
formed of young women, calling their branch St. Elizabeth's. 
Mrs. E. L. Davant, District Chairman. 



REPORT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN DISTRICT 
April 1933-1934 

This District has suffered from having to elect a new Chairman 
in the middle of a term, the former one moving out of the Dio- 
cese. This is always a disadvantage, and no one realizes it more 
than the one elected to succeed a retiring officer. 

However, reports coming in show that our District has been 
active in all its departments. 

The very foundation of intelligent activity — Religious Educa- 
tion — has been well sustained. Most Branches have prepared pro- 
grams for the year's work; and have also studied the prescribed 
Text-Books. About a dozen leaders of Study Classes have been 
discovered. Since each Branch reports the need of leadership, 
this is encouraging. 

Good work has been done in the Sqpial Service Department. 
The activities of the Clinic at Church of the Good Shepherd, at 
Cooleemee, would do credit to any report. All Branches have 
been generous in their contributions to Thompson Orphanage. 
One Branch reports their habit of carrying the garments pro- 
vided for their adopted child. This is one way of keeping alive 
their deep concern for their child's welfare. All Branches have 
worked with County and City Welfare Agencies, so there has been 
no overlapping of relief work. Delightful letters have been re- 
ceived from Prayer Partners, in response to letters and gifts sent 



36 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



to them. Our Box Work Secretary reports, "Our District is not 
only attending to the practical and educational sides of the Supply 
Work, but has gone on to the next step, which is spiritual; and 
study of our various Missions and Missionaries has brought us to 
offer devout intercessions for them in their work." At each of 
our District Meetings, we have had the privilege of having our 
Diocesan President, and she has already proven an inspiration 
and blessing to us. Mrs. W. T. Holmes, Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The regular Spring and Fall meetings were held, one in the 
Chapel of Hope, North Charlotte, and the other in St. Paul's 
Church, Monroe. 4 5 

At the Fall meeting, the Rev. LeRoy A. Hahn, of Morganton, 
spoke on his mission work, which was especially interesting and 
educational as the Box Work of three of the branches in our Dis- 
trict was assigned to this mission field. 

Miss Margarhetta Ridgely, of Baltimore, retired Missionary of 
the House of Bethany, Liberia, was also our guest and told of 
the wonderful work done in this foreign field. 

We were disappointed in not having the Rev. Eric M. Tasman, 
of the Field Department of the National Council, speak at our 
Fall meeting, but Mr. Tasman was in our District later and many 
of our branches had the privilege of hearing him. The Rev. I. 
Harding Hughes, Chairman of the Field Department of the Dio- 
cese, gave the message of the program of the Church in a very 
forceful and enlightening manner. We had the pleasure of hear- 
ing from Miss Margaret Williams, Student Secretary of St. Mary's 
House, Greensboro. Miss Williams told of her work with the 
N. C. C. W. girls, and in answering how the women of the Aux- 
iliary could be of service to her, she suggested visiting St. Mary's 
House, and showing interest in the girls, also donating books for 
a library. She read a list of recommended books. Some of our 
women have visited St. Mary's House. A much needed book, the 
Living Church Annual, was given by one of our branches, also 
bulbs were sent for the garden at St. Mary's House. 

At our Fall meeting, two officers were elected, Mrs. Hugh T. 
Hovis, Charlotte, Christian Social Service Secretary, and Mrs. 
Everett F. Croxson, Charlotte, Secretary of the Young People's 
Work. Mrs. Croxson is filling the unexpired term of Mrs. Brent 
Drane, who is out of the District at the present time. 

Our Religious Educational Department was greatly helped by 
the Institute conducted by Mrs. William Gordon, at St. Peter's 
Parish House, Charlotte. She outlined the Study Book, "The 
Never Failing Light," which was of valuable aid to our branches 
for the Study Classes. 

It is very gratifying that the United Thank Offering for the 
District showed an increase over 1932, particularly so, as more 
women are using the little Blue Box. Our ideal is that every 
woman in the District may feel the need and privilege of helping 
to spread the Kingdom of Christ by gifts of thanksgiving. 

Programs have been given the Box Supply Department and 
extra work done by some of the branches. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 37 



As requested by the Executive Board of the Diocese, the Sec- 
retary of the Young People's Work has been listed among our 
officers. 

Many of our branches have done outstanding work in Christian 
Social Service, but as a District we have not been active. How- 
ever, under the leadership of our new Secretary, we hope to have 
a better report in the future. 

The Quiet Day of Prayer, November 11th, was observed in the 
District. 

After deducting expenses of the meeting, the Fall Offering was 
given to make up a shortage in the Valle Crucis Scholarship, 
which is a memorial to Bishop Cheshire. 

Many of the women of our District attend Summer Conferences. 
We hope for a greater number each year to take advantage of 
this wonderful opportunity to develop leadership in carrying on 
our Lord's work in His way. 

Mrs. C. L. Rowe, Chairman. 



REPORT OF DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

Since our last report at the Annual Meeting, the Richmond 
District has been carrying on with little change in the personnel 
of its five branches. 

Our meetings have been regular and attendance very satisfac- 
tory. Two District Meetings were held on schedule time, Spring 
meeting in Calvary Church, Wadesboro, and Fall meeting in All 
Saints Church, Hamlet. To both of these meetings came our 
Diocesan President and Educational Secretary, and their presence 
and helpful words cheered and encouraged us. 

At the Spring meeting we were delighted to have with us the 
Rev. and Mrs. Willis G. Clark, of St. Peter's Church, Charlotte. 
Mr. Clark's words were particularly timely, and we will not soon 
forget his nautical illustration of "Turn on the Auxiliary." Mrs. 
Clark gave concrete valuable assistance in our Church School 
problems. 

The Richmond District gave $13 to improvements at Ravens- 
croft. 

The Fall meeting was a prelude to the observance of the Day of 
Prayer, November 11th, 1933, and its timely theme was "Prayer." 
Our gathering was blessed by the presence of the Gordons, of 
Spray, and both of them led us to new heights in the Power of 
Prayer. 

As a District we have co-operated with the Committee for the 
observance of a world-wide Day of Prayer for Missions, Febru- 
ary 16th, 1934. 

Our District Secretaries have twice reported and these reports 
showed that all are alive in the different fields of endeavor. 

Richmond has a new Prayer Partner, Deaconess King, of Mis- 
sion, South Dakota, and her full life and ready pen are inspirations 
to all of us. 

We feel that our farthest advance has been made along Edu- 
cational lines. Various members attended an Institute held in 
Charlotte, November, 1933, and received valuable aid from Mrs. 
Gordon in organizing our Parish Classes. We studied the "Never 
Failing Light," and were impressed with its power over the indi- 



38 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



vidual conscience. In addition to the above book, both the Wades- 
boro Branches studied the "Life and Letters of St. Paul" for the 
first four weeks in Lent. 

The District Chairman, Mrs. Bennett, having accepted this 
office for one year only, Miss Heloise Smith, of Rockingham, was 
chosen for the place. Mrs. W. B. Little resigned as District Sec- 
retary. 

It is hard to express in words our enthusiasms for Auxiliary 
work, and our confidence in the abiding presence of the Holy 
Spirit. Respectfully submitted, 

Kate S. Bennett. 



BISHOP CHESHIRE SCHOLARSHIP AT VALdLE CRUCIS 

This is the third time I have come before a General Meeting 
tc make a Bishop Cheshire Scholarship report, but this is the first 
time I can say that the Scholarship was paid in full. True — it 
was late in the year — but it was done! However, I do not feel 
very proud of the achievement, for Miss Hall had to come to my 
assistance and ask for special offerings, at the Fall District Meet- 
ings, for this purpose. The branches, of course, did finally com- 
plete the Scholarship and to them we give full credit, but it was 
not an offering made on the Feast of the Annunciation as it 
should be. 

If all the Branch Presidents would stress the value of our inter- 
cessory days and plan for a corporate service for their women, 
the offerings would be adequate. 

I make an earnest appeal to you today on behalf of Valle 
Crucis. She needs the Bishop Cheshire Scholarship before the 
opening of the Fall term, so send us your offering just as soon as 
you go home. 

This is our responsibility and our obligation, and I ask your 
unqualified support. 

Mrs. Ben White, Chairman, 
Bishop Cheshire Scholarship. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 39 



COMMITTEE REPORTS 

REPORT OF RECRUITING SECRETARY 

I gather from letters received from Recruiting Secretaries 
throughout the Diocese, that there is a vagueness in their minds 
as to their duties. 

There seems a prevailing conception of this work, that it begins 
and ends with an effort to secure recruits for the Mission Fields. 

The dictionary defines recruiting to mean "to enlist for service, 
to refresh, to build up, to renew, to invigorate." Hence we see 
the duties of a Recruiting Secretary are manifold. 

There are five important objects for consideration: 

1. Baptism of Children. 

2. The Church School. 

3. The Woman's Auxiliary. 

4. Summer Camps. 

5. St. Mary's School. 

The Recruiting Secretary must endeavor to secure the Baptism 
of all infants, and unbaptized adults not connected with any 
church. 

She must see that the children are enrolled in the Church 
School, and the adults are members of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

It is not advised to set aside occasionally a day for Church 
work, resulting in a day of exhaustion, with home duties neg- 
lected, but rather that the responsibility be ever present, daily and 
hourly. To my mind, the religious life cannot be separated from 
practical every day affairs. Day by day must we astutely and 
wisely seek the diversion of service. 

The intimate personal work in a Parish may develop in some 
one the desire to take the broader step of offering her life for the 
spread of the Kingdom of God, for an interested woman at once 
becomes a missionary. Though the joy of a foreign experience 
may be denied her, there are many true and real missionaries 
who never have the opportunity to leave their own Parishes. 

In times of joy or of sorrow a word of help fitly spoken, will 
yield untold results, be the sympathetic kindly approach to a 
human being, made at home or on the street. 

Of grave importance is the securing of boys and girls for sum- 
mer camps. If necessary, funds may be secured for this purpose 
through the various church organizations. The Recruiting Sec- 
retary should secure and familiarize herself with all available 
information concerning the camps. 

The Dioceses of the Carolinas have a wonderful college located 
in Raleigh. It should be a matter of pride, and distinctly a work 
of the Woman's Auxiliary, to influence our fine girls of culture, 
intelligence, and refinement, to go to St. Mary's School. 

The Principal, Mrs. Ernest Cruikshank, is a woman of great 
power, and is both admired and beloved. She has a personal 
interest in every girl at St. Mary's. The grade A, two year's 
college course at St. Mary's, is not excelled by any Northern 
or Southern College, and the honor graduate from St. Mary's, 
can enter the Junior Class of any of the highest grade colleges 
or universities, North or South. 

I wrote the National Council for information concerning the 
urgent need for recruits in the Mission Fields. A letter from the 



40 FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL REPORT 



Associate Secretary, Rev. A. B. Parsons, gives the following in- 
formation : 

"At present we are searching for a nurse for China, and one 
for Japan. 

"Shanghai asks for ten American women for evangelistic 
workers. i \*\q/$$ 

"Young women are needed of unquestioned devotion, winning 
personality, and with the very best of educational preparation. 
They should be sturdy in physique, free from family responsibility 
or financial obligations here or at home; and they should be pre- 
pared to devote a substantial number of years to this work." 

May we hope that some young women in this Diocese may be 
inspired with the love and faith sufficient to be willing to go unto 
the uttermost parts of the earth, in answer to these calls? 

President of Woman's Auxiliary, Members and especially 
Prayer Partner Correspondents : 

Think what wonderful work we here can do for those who toil 
for Him in far off places by our fervent prayers, by letters to 
cheer and comfort them, and by gifts however small. Even a 
card shows thought and love. 

Let us take our Saviour's injunction to carry the gospel to 
all nations upon ourselves, and lighten and brighten the often 
hard burdens of our Prayer Partners as much as possible. Let 
us determine to renew our interest in them and their work by 
frequent prayers, letters and gifts, and let them be assured of 
the church at home upholding and sustaining them.

Every member of the Auxiliary by participating in the activi- 
ties of the Church Periodical Club has an opportunity to render 
service that is far reaching in its influence. 

It does not require a vivid imagination to visualize the eager- 
ness with which magazines and books are read by those who have 
been unable to procure them. Clergymen, missionaries, inmates 
of hospitals and jails and orphanages have by letter and by word 
expressed their gratitude to the C. P. C. for these gifts. 

As several Clergymen and Missionaries in our Diocese are 
beneficiaries by subscriptions to church periodicals procured 
through the C. P. C, it behooves the Woman's Auxiliary to ac- 
tively contribute to the support of this organization. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 

Only 35 of the branches kept an accurate report of the many 
magazines, cards, etc., sent out, but it is gratifying to note that 
more prayer books and hymnals were given this past year. 

The objectives for the work are: 

1. Forward your magazines regularly. 

2. Pass on good books while they are new. 

3. At Christmas and Easter buy one or two extra cards for 
some mission. 

4. Write friendly letters to those to whom you send. 

5. Make some regular gifts in money. 

6. Pray for the work especially on the first Sunday in May and 
request your Rector to have a special offering at this time. 

mossie long hartzell, Chairman. 



WORK AMONG THE ISOLATED. 

Instead of a report this is of necessity a statement of plans for 
the year ahead. 

Who are the isolated? 

"Those who are unable to take an active part in the group life 
of the Church." They may be in rural areas, in towns or cities. 

Is there need for this work in the North Carolina branch of the 
Auxiliary ? 

"There are over 20 million unchurched people in isolated areas 
of the U. S., according to a recent government census." There 
are said to be thousands and thousands of our own Church people 
in the U. S., almost entirely out of touch with the Church; and it 
is, logical to conclude that scores if not hundreds of these are in 
our own Diocese — to say nothing of the thousands of the un- 
churched isolated. 

What are the immediate plans for enlarging and intensifying the 
work in this branch of the Auxiliary? 

First, concentration on isolated Churchwomen in an effort to 
connect every one of them with the nearest branch in some way; 
concentration on invalids, binding them to the Church in a dio- 
cesan intercessory group; and concentration on children, both 
churched and unchurched children. 

What is the plan for reaching isolated Churchwomen? 

Every branch is asked to work out its own plan. Several sug- 
gestions are made to branch presidents as having worked in other 
dioceses if they have no better plan. 

What is the plan for the isolated children? 

1. The clergy are being asked if there is a Sunday School they 
feel the need of starting or reviving and if they need the help of 
the nearest branch of the Auxiliary in so doing; and the branches 
are being asked if they can find teachers, prepare them, and send 
them out regularly if the clergy call on them. 



42 FIFTY-SEOOND ANNUAL REPORT 



2. To the parents of our Church who cannot bring their children 
to Sunday School at least once a month regularly there will be 
offered Sunday School lessons and helps . . to be mailed monthly 
for nine months in the year. 

What is the first step? 

Securing the names and addresses of isolated Churchwomen 
and Church parents. The clergy and Auxiliary presidents are be- 
ing depended upon to find all such people in their towns and 
counties, blanks have been furnished for names and addresses, 
and their zeal in all good works makes it certain that they can be 
depended upon for this help, without which nothing else can be 
done. 

CLAUDIA HUNTER, 

Chairman Work Among the Isolated. 



YOUNG PEOPLE'S WORK 

The Young People's Work is growing all the time. The young 
people, themselves, are interested, but they can go only a limited 
way without sympathetic and intelligent adult leadership. The 
Young People's Work includes both the Church Schools and the 
Young People's Service Leagues and it is urged that in every 
Parish there be at least one member of the Auxiliary who will put 
work with the young people first among her Church activities. 
It would be well if the members of the Auxiliary could take a 
course on Young People's work at the Summer Conferences but 
when that is not possible much benefit can be derived from read- 
ing and studying at home. With the continuing and ever increas- 
ing interest and assistance from the Auxiliary the Young People's 
Work will advance steadily. What can be more important than 
our young people? We hear much about training the future 
leaders of the Church, about plans for the future welfare of the 
Church, but what is going to happen in the future depends on 
what is done now in the present. 

Laura Clark, Secretary Young People's Work.

FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



FOREWORD. 



This Journal is more than a bare record of proceedings of the 
Annual Meeting. It is a handbook of the Woman's Auxiliary in 
the Diocese of North Carolina. I recommend it for frequent refer- 
ence, careful study, and the Prayers for constant use. Here is 
the story of a year's achievement, compact and modestly told. But 
it shows impressively how the missionary work of the Church is 
growing and spreading under the faithful leadership of women 
and other disciples who are obedient to Christ's command to teach 
and evangelize the nations of the world.

FIFTY THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



fln fllktnoriam 



Katherine Drane Cheshire, — affectionately known 
throughout the Diocese as "Miss Kate," — died on the eve 
of the Feast of the Epiphany, 1935. What a fitting time 
for her who had constantly manifested her light to those 
both far and near. 

Through inheritance and training, she learned early to 
give her first allegiance to the Church, responding al- 
ways to any call — large or small, and doing it with the 
dignity and faithfulness that it merited. 

To the Woman's Auxiliary she gave of her best — and 
what a gift that was! For many, many years as its Presi- 
dent, she guided it lovingly, intelligently and spiritually 
from strength to strength. As a leader she had few equals, 
for within her had been bestowed a diversity of talents. 
Wise in counsel, energetic in service, consecrated in spirit 
— she was one of the really great Missionary leaders. Her 
very presence was an inspiration to any gathering. 
Though no longer among us in the flesh, yet the Auxiliary 
will always feel a deep sense of thankfulness for the con- 
tinuing stimulus and strength of a companionship which 
yet endures.

FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



Iprapers 



'And I, if I be lifted up, will draw all men unto Me. 



Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved; through Thy Merits and mercies, 
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever 
One God, world without end. Amen. 

Auxiliary Prayer 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thank- 
ful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all Nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for 
His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work *or the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go lirito the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

A Prayer for the Diocese V 

O God, whose love reacheth unto the ends of the world, Bless, 
we pray Thee, this Diocese; and grant that all who share its bene- 
fits may show forth Thy glory by deeds and by gifts for the 
spread of Thy Kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons 
of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties com- 
mitted to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace 
and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten 
their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. .Bless 
all who have contributed to this institution, and raise up, we 
pray Thee, a never-failing succession of benefactors whose names 
may be perpetuated through all generations as a blessed memory, 
and their good deeds be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. s 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with 
favor, we beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, 
especially in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for 
the poor, the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their 
burdens with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, 
our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep. Whose 
flocks are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the 
hope of a better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep in 
scattered places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; Who 
art with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world 
without end. Amen. 



For Religious Education 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, 
the Truth and the Life, Grant that we, looking unto Him may set 
forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



For Social Service 

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, 
making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest, 
who dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and 
joy of the citizens of that holy city. Amen. 



For the Forward Movement 

O Lord Jesus Christ, who hast taught us always to pray and 
not to faint, we lift up to Thy mercy the need of Thy Church. And 
since Thou hast given us the resolve to go forward and not back, 
grant to the leaders of our Forward Movement to be both wise 
and daring disciples, and to Thy people an heart to follow them, 
for Thy sake who art with the Father and the Holy Spirit one 
God, world without end. Amen. 



For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth 
more laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special 
grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the Field, 
and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts 
of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou has given to 
them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of 
prayer and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to the coming of 
Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can en- 
able us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dig- 
nity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our lead- 
ers those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; to those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of 
every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 

workers in Thy service: bless we pray Thee Thy servant, 

and prosper her in the v/ork to which Thou has called her. Grant 
her sufficient wisdom for every task. Thy gracious help in time of 
trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and the power to 
accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name and for Thy 
glory; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." Amen. 

Thanksgiving 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee humble 
thanks for all the great things Thou has done and are doing for 
the children of men; for the opening of heathen lands to the light 
of Thy truth; for making paths unto the deep waters and highways 
in the desert; for knitting nation to nation in the bond of fellow- 
ship, and for the planting of Thy Church in all the earth. O 
merciful Father, in whom the whole family is named, fill full our 
hearts with grateful love for this Thy goodness, granting grace 
henceforth to serve Thee better and more perfectly to know Thee; 
through Jesus Chris* our Lord. Arnen. 

The Re-dedication 

Realizing that only throufh personal dedication to Jesus Christ, 
our Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human endeavors, 
we re-dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
to making the strength of our deeds the measure of our Faith; 
to a sincere and simple effort in our daily living to follow with 
humility the example of our Saviour.

1935 

Keynote: "Forward Be our Watchword." 

Minutes 

The Fifty-third Annual Meeting" of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary to the National Council of the Diocese of North 
Carolina convened Thursday morning, April 25th, at 
eleven o'clock in St. Peter's Church, Charlotte. The Rev. 
Willis G. Clark, Rector of St. Peter's, read the opening 
prayers and spoke a few words of welcome. 

The President presided and called the meeting to order, 
after which the secretary called the roll. 

Mrs. E. J. Wannamaker, Jr., extended a welcome to the 
meeting on the part of St. Peter's Service League and 
Mrs. J. B. Cheshire, Jr., Raleigh, responded in the name 
of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

At this point the President presented to Bishop Penick 
a new set of vestments with the affection and gratitude 
of the Auxiliary. The gift was accepted by the Bishop with 
a few well chosen words of appreciation. 

The President delivered her annual address, reviewing 
the activities of the past year, offering recommendations 
for the consideration of the meeting and closing with an 
earnest appeal for a deeper, more vital spiritual life, and 
a clearer perception of the immediate opportunities for 
service. 

The following Committees were then appointed:

meditations, making a short talk and reading appropriate 
prayers. 



22 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



Due to the absence of the Rev. Roma C. Fortune, the 
Presentation of the 1935 Program was postponed un f ;i 
Friday. 

The District Chairman then gave interesting and com- 
prehensive reports, which were ordered printed in the 
year book. 

The Credentials Committee reported 48 branches rep- 
resented, 104 delegates present, including members of the 
Executive Board, making 104 votes. 

At 1 :3o the meeting adjourned for lunch and opened 
again at 2:30, immediately after which elections took place. 
Miss Corinna Gant was duly elected Vice-President and Sup- 
ply S .retary. Mrs. Marion Taylor, United Thank Offer- 
ing . astodian; Mrs. R. N. Wilson. Secretary of Religious 
Education; and Mrs. Ross M. Sigmon, Wcman Repre- 
sentative on the Diocesan Executive Council. 

Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Taylor declined the offices to 
which they were elected and Mn;. Ben V.. White was elect- 
ed Secretary of Religious Education, and Mrs. Harvey 
Hutchison, United Thank Offering Custodian. Upon Mrs. 
Ben White's resignation, which was accepted by the meet- 
ing, Mrs. Isaac W. Hughes was elected Secretary of Re- 
ligious Education, but declined the office, whereupon Mrs. 
Cheshire Webb was elected to this office. 

At this point, Mrs. S. L. Martin spoke a few words of 
appreciation for the revised budget and percentage card. 

Speaking for Vade Mecum, Mr. Vache urged attendance 
at the camps for young people and at the Auxiliary con- 
ference. He said Auxiliary Day will be August 14th. A 
Laymen's League Conference is being instituted this year, 
to be held at the close of the Auxiliary Conference. 

Mrs. Cruikshank, reporting on St. Mary's School, stated 
that this has been a good year and that St. Mary's is in 
better shape than most Church schools. She made an 
earnest appeal for the co-operation of the Auxiliary in in- 
teresting giris and for co-operation with the Alumnae 

V. 

Miss Mildred Waddell, Alumnae Secret. ry, appealing 
especially to the many members of the Alumnae present, 
asked for their support of the school and the Alumnae 
Association. 

Miss Margaret Williams, worker at the $tudent Center 
at the W. C. U. N. C, told of the work being done by St. 
Mary's House and of the way in which it is serving the 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 23 

spiritual needs and need for Christian fellowship among 
the girls there. 

Mrs. Essie Edwards, Chairman of the Negro District, re- 
ported that the women in the Negro branches are anxious 
to participate in the work of the Auxiliary, to assume their 
full share and to learn. She asked for confidence in them 
and for instruction for them. 

The following Committee Chairmen made interesting 
reports: Mrs. E. K. Powe, on Prayer Partnership; Mrs. 
F. S. Spruill, Recruiting; Mrs. Howard Hartzell, Church 
Periodical Club. 

At 5 o'clock the meeting adjourned, the Rev. Harding 
Hughes reading the closing prayers. 

Evening Service was held at 8 p. m., the sermon being 
preached by the Rt. Rev. Henry W. Hobson, Bishop of the 
Diocese of Southern Ohio. Bishop Hobson in a most 
forceful and inspiring address presented the Forward 
Movement, appealing for an honest facing of facts, an un- 
compromising re-dedication and enlistment in the cause 
of Christ. 

At 7:30 on Friday morning a Corporate Communion 
was held by Bishop Penick and the Rector, Mr, Clark, 
with presentation of the United Thank Offering, given 
this year as a memorial to Miss Kate Cheshire. Prayers 
were offered in memory of those members who have en- 
tered the Kingdom of Heaven since the last Annual Meet- 
ing. 

The meeting convened at 9:45 with opening prayers by 
the Rev. John Long Jackson. 

Bishop Penick introduced Mrs. Ethel Louise Byerly Sim- 
monds, a North Carolina girl who has been serving at 
Cape Mount Liberia. Mrs. Simmonds expressed her ap- 
preciation of the way in which the Auxiliary has stood by 
her. 

Miss Olive Meacham, who for nearly seven years has 
served as principal of the Julia C. Emery School for girls 
at Bromley, on the St. Paul's River, Liberia, gave a pic- 
ture of conditions in Liberia, describing with many graphic 
examples the ignorance and superstition of the people. 
She told of her school, its 75 baptized children and the 
religious education given them. The aim of the school 
is to give the girls a practical knowledge and mastery of 
the conditions under which they must live when they 
leave the school. Miss Meacham closed with an appeal to 



24 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

keep open the work begun in Africa and to keep alive the 
flame of Christianity lighted there. 

Mrs. Wall read the report of the Committee on Work 
with the Isolated, Miss Claudia Hunter, Chairman, being 
absent. 

The Rev. Roma C. Fortune, interpreted by his son, 
brought a word of appreciation from Epiphatha Church, 
Durham for the help given them by the Auxiliary, out- 
lining the history of the work among the Deaf in this dio- 
cese, which was begun in 1906, and paying special tribute 
to Bishop Cheshire, Bishop Penick, the Rev. S. S. Bost, 
and Miss Tillinghast, who have given it their support. Mr. 
Fortune stated that there are 101 communicants among 
the deaf in Durham, 6o outside of Durham, making a total 
of 16 1 deaf communicants in the diocese. 

Invitation was extended by St. Philip's Branch, Durham, 
for the 54th Annual Meeting to be held in Durham, April 
1936. This invitation was accepted by the Convention. 

Mrs. W. J. Gordon, Director of the Auxiliary Confer- 
ence at Vade Mecum, told of the plans for the summer 
conference and urged co-operation by attendance. Each 
Branch was urged to appoint one woman as Vade Mecum 
representative. 

The Rev. W. H. Wheeler, Superintendent of the Thomp- 
son Orphanage, made a short talk about that institution. 
He spoke specially of eight outstanding boys and girls 
from the Orphanage graduating from High School this 
year, and closed with an appeal for follow-up work with 
the boys and girls who go out from the Orphanage. 

The Rev. Willis G. Clark followed Mr. Wheeler's talk 
with a few words of appreciation for the work being done 
by Mr. Wheeler. 

Mrs. Ross Sigmon, Treasurer, spoke briefly about the 
revised budget and the projects undertaken for 1935, ex- 
pressing appreciation for the way in which the branches 
have received the new system of budgeting. 

The following resolution were recommended by the 
Committee on Resolutions and duly adopted: 

1. Resolved: That the Social Service Department of the Aux- 
iliary make it a part of their program to "follow up" the boys and 
girls as they graduate from the Thompson Orphanage. 

2. Whereas the year book which comes out in mid-summer is 
out of date, as to the officers listed in parishes, where elections 
are held in January, and whereas the year book is published after 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 25 



all the plans for fall work have been made, especially that of the 
Religious Education Committee, and whereas the plans and sug- 
gestions contained in the year book are of little value to the 
branches but would be if the officers of the branches were elected 
in May, following the Annual meeting and had the summer 
months for preparation and an uninterrupted winter's work: Be it 
resolved that the parish branches have the same fiscal year as the 
Diocesan Auxiliary, electing their officers in May following the 
Annual Meeting. 

3. Be it resolved: That the Educational program and the So- 
cial Service program be printed in full in the year book. 

4. Whereas during the present annual convention much valu- 
able time has been consumed in the election of officers, due to the 
fact that the consent of nominees had not been obtained previous 
to the meeting: Be it therefore resolved that Article No. VIII of 
the Constitution be amended to read as follows: The President 
shall appoint a nominating committee of three, chosen from the 
Executive Board, before the Diocesan Convention, and that said 
committee shall obtain the consent of the nominee before the 
Convention meets, and be it further resolved that the consent 
shall be also obtained of those nominated from the floor. Further 
be it resolved that the candidate receiving the highest number of 
votes be elected. 

5. Whereas one of the most important committees appointed at 
our Annual Meeting is that of the Resolutions Committee, and 
whereas it is the last report called for, after many delegates have 
had to leave: Be it therefore resolved: That the report of the 
Resolutions Committee be given immediately after the devotional 
service on the morning of the second day. 

6. Be it resolved: That a telegram ba sent to Mrs. Partrick re- 
gretting her absence from this meeting, also thanking her for her 
untiring and faithful work as Educational Secretary. 

At 12 o'clock noon-day meditations were conducted by 
Mrs. W. J. Bryan. 

Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon, Chairman of the Committee on 
Findings from the Discussion, made the following report: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON FINDINGS FROM THE 
DISCUSSION. 

Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon, Chairman. 

1. That the President's address opened the meeting with an 
optimistic note, particularly in her report of the growth of the 
Auxiliary in the formation of four new branches. 

2. That the financial affairs of the Auxiliary show encourage- 
ment, the Supply Department making a notable gain of 50 per cent 
and both the Treasurer and U. T. O. Treasurer reporting an in- 
crease. General appreciation of the revised plan of budgeting 
promises even greater results for this year. 

3. That the devotional life of the Auxiliary in its observance of 
quiet days and days of prayer and corporate communions is inspir- 
ing, but that the proportionate number of Bible Classes is very 
small. In view of the emphasis laid by the Forward Movement 
Commission on Information, every woman should be enrolled in 



26 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



some systematic study of the Bible and even greater emphasis be 
placed on the personal side of religious education. 

4. That a forward step has been taken in the appointment of 
a trained leader for work with young people, and that the Aux- 
iliary has a great opportunity to promote institutes and personal 
conferences with Miss Cutler. 

5. That the district reports show a faithful use of the general 
Auxiliary program; and that the report of the newly organized 
Negro District shows a fine spirit of interest and co-operation. 

6. That an offering of a gift of life in the past year is an occa- 
sion of rejoicing and that the Auxiliary felt it a privilege to share 
in sending this, our own representative, into the field. 

7. That the experience of the elections suggests the necessity 
of a different method of procedure, and a very solemn considera- 
tion on the part of the members of the Auxiliary of the high privi- 
lege of service in parish, district and diocese. 

8. That Mrs. Bryan opened our eyes with her revealing in- 
terpretation of Christ's request for our unused faculties and op- 
portunities in the story of the empty fishing boats and blessed our 
hearts with the reminder that it is ours to tell everywhere in every 
need, "Jesus of Nazareth passeth by." 

9. That we heard with mingled emotions of rejoicing and 
shame the stirring life-stories of some of the Father's children in 
Liberia, told by Miss Olive Meacham. Do we dare not face the 
challenge she presented of keeping the Light of the World shining 
in Liberia and the other dark places of the earth — the one really 
worth while use of our talents, our gifts and our lives? Our $750 
pledged this year will give 15 children an opportunity at (Jape 
Mount. 

10. That the interesting and inspiring address of the Rev. Roma 
C. Fortune on the Church's work among the Deaf in this diocese, 
made us thankful for the privilege of contributing $1,000 toward his 
salary, known as the Bishop Cheshire Memorial Fund. 

11. That "our hearts burned within us" when, through the 
sermon of Bishop Hobson, we heard afresh the Master's call to 
single minded, uncompromising discipleship; to a life which honest- 
ly faces the present challenging need and dependent only upon 
the unlimited power of the Holy Spirit, goes courageously forward 
to share in the glorious adventure of rehabilitation; to a life which 
faces the cross daily, "for the servant is not greater than his 
Lord," but to a life which has daily the companionship of Him 
whose own "well done" will be a glorious crown of rejoicing. 

Mrs. Simms, U. T. O. Custodian, announced the United 
Thank Offering- presented at this meeting to be $2,5 16.02. 

The meeting voted a rising vote of thanks for Mrs. 
Simms, retiring U. T. O. Custodian, and Mrs. George 
Watts Carr, retiring Vice-President and Supply Secretary. 

The following report of the Courtesy Committee was 
adopted: 

"First, this committee wishes to express to Almighty God our 
gratitude for the perfect weather which has enabled so many to 
attend this 53rd convention of the Woman's Auxiliary, and for His 
many other blessings, both seen and felt on every hand. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 27 



"We deeply appreciate the cordial welcome and many friendly 
courtesies extended by the hostess auxiliary and friends of St. 
Peter's Church; the magnificent address of welcome from the Rev. 
Willis Clark, the soul uplifting music of both choir and organ un- 
der the masterly direction of Mr. William Wall Whidditt. 

"To Miss Emma Hall and each of the leaders who have con-, 
tributed to the great success of the program, to our hostesses in 
the lovely homes of Charlotte who have extended warm and cord- 
ial welcomes, we return sincere appreciation. 

"We know that each delegate feels with us that the more often 
we attend these inspiring conventions, the more deepened our in- 
terest becomes." 

An additional resolution was adopted by the meeting, 
thanking the press of the city for their many courtesies.. 

The President reported communication received from 
Miss Corinna Gant accepting the office of Vice-President 
and Supply Secretary, also communication from Mrs. Ches- 
hire Webb declining the office of Secretary of Religious 
education. Resolution was passed instructing the Executive 
Board to fill this vacancy. 

The minutes of this meeting were read and approved, 
and the new United Thank Offering Custodian and Rep- 
resentative on the Diocesan Executive Council duly in- 
stalled. All business having been transacted Bishop Penick 
pronounced the benediction and the Fifty-third Annual 
Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North 
Carolina was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MILDRED J. ZACHARY, 

Secretary 



28 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS TO THE CONVENTION OF 1935. 

Dear Members of the Auxiliary and Friends: — 

We come in this, our Fifty-third Annual Meeting, to lay 
another year's labor of love at the feet of the Master, 
trusting it may be found acceptable in His sight. It was 
my privilege in company with your other delegates to rep- 
resent you at the General Convention held at Atlantic 
City, and I shall ever be grateful for the opportunity of 
sharing in what to my mind was the greatest General Con- 
vention we have ever held. The program was stimulating 
and far reaching in scope and achievement. We are to make 
this program ours for the coming three years in the study 
of Missions, Christian Citizenship and the Life of the Spirit, 
keeping ever the keynote in mind, "If we be His Disciples." 
A rich experience was mine in being chosen on one of 
the Field Teams sent out to tell the story of the General 
Convention. I attended nine of the District Meetings, 
Auxiliary Day at Kanuga, the Conference at Vade Mecum, 
and presided at Auxiliary Day at Vade Mecum, and have 
held four Executive Board meetings. 

The Auxiliary of the diocese participated in the World 
Day of Prayer and shared in the Day for Prayer on Arm- 
istice Day. 

It is a great pleasure to report the organization of four 
new Branches — one at Elkin, one at Concord, one at 
Asheboro, and one Tarboro. We bid them welcome and 
to a share in the privileges of service in the Auxiliary. 

Mrs. Theodore Partrick, Jr., our Educational Secretary, 
held four Institutes on Japan in various parts of the diocese, 
which were enthusiastically attended and which have awak- 
ened a deeper responsibility to share the only thing that Ja- 
pan has not, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. 

Miss Laura Clark promoted two Institutes for leaders of 
Young People's Work, with excellent results, and you will 
be glad to know that Miss Maude Cutler has taken up this 
important work since Miss Clark left for China, and I am 
asking that you give her your co-operation and assistance. 

Acting under your permission, our Budget for 1935 was 
revised and sent to each Branch, and your response has 
been gratifying indeed. We now have a Foreign project, 
a Domestic project, and a Diocesan project, and my joy 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 29 

knows no bounds in the fact that it has all been pledged, 
because what the Auxiliary pledges it performs. 

The recommendations that you accepted last year have 
all been effected and I am asking you to consider the fol- 
lowing for 1935 : 

(1) That each Branch -pledge support to Vade Mecum and send 
at least one delegate to the Vade Mecum Conference. 

(2) That we study the addresses made at the Triennial and in- 
clude them in your programs. 

(3) That we endeavor to deepen our spiritual lives and the 
quality of our Discipleship through prayer, service, Bible study 
and participating in the Forward Movement, in an effort to re- 
vitalize the Church. 

(4) That we keep the resolution on the United Thank Offering 
made at the Triennial ever before us in the coming three years and 
make an effort to give every vioman in our diocese the blessing 
of the little Blue Box. 

I am sure a deep sense of gratitude fills our hearts when 
we think of our "Gift of Life" in the past year. Miss 
Laura Clark is now in China as Secretary to Bishop Hunt- 
ingdon, and what a joy it has been to all of us to share in 
her going and I feel sure we are keeping her in our hearts 
and in our prayers. 

May I remind you that we are facing unparalleled op- 
portunities in our Church today. Bishop Perry said re- 
cently, "We are entering a new chapter in our Church's 
life. We are entering our hardest missionary field, that of 
the United States." We are told that the weakness of our 
Church's work abroad is because of our weakness at home. 
Bishop Bartlett tells us of the 30,000,000 people in our 
land with no religion and 11,000,000 children getting no 
religious training in America today. Unless we give the 
children a vital religion, what of the future of the Church? 

There are nearly a million and a half Episcopalians in 
the United States and two-thirds of them give not one cent 
to preach the Gospel or heal the sick, and thousands of 
others are content to give a weekly offering of not more 
than the cost of a newspaper, a package of cigarettes or a 
movie ticket. We have asked people for dollars and cents 
instead of asking them to take Christ to China or Japan 
or Liberia. We have closed mission stations, failed in giv- 
ing sight to the blind and restoration to lepers. O friends, 
the Cross means sacrifice, if we be His Disciples! 

I am asking you to go forward with me this year in a 
spiritual adventure for Christ and His Church, in giving 



30 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

our souls and bodies a living sacrifice in prayer and work, 
for if we work and pray, we will give at any cost. 

This year let us really learn to pray and have definite 
times for prayer for our church, for our diocese, for our par- 
ish, for our Auxiliary and for some indifferent person, and 
for the special objects on our Memoranda. The paramount 
need of our Church today is more prayer, greater sacrifice, 
and gladness and joy in His service. Let prayer be a real 
joy to us and not a duty, and we will soon see things hap- 
pening! Once the Easter message becomes real to us and 
we are risen with Christ, we can put joy and power into 
the Church. Miss Lindley, in her meditations at Atlantic 
City, asked us to picture what the Auxiliary might be, if it 
cared so much that it died for the world and if it lived a 
gloriously risen life, if it gave itself to God our Father in 
glad service, that we might then know "a blessed passion, 
a precious death a mighty resurrection and a glorious as- 
cension," and all this is possible if we be His Disciples in 
very truth. 

These are the deeper things of life that I covet for you, 
my dear friends of the Auxiliary, and I bid you to this high 
adventure in Dicipleship. In this year of our Lord you and 1 
have a message to give and that message is Jesus Christ. 
Let us bear this message Forward.

Board, kept minutes, and sent out notices of meetings to the mem-

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 31 



REPORT OF SUPPLY DEPARTMENT 1934. 

It gives me great pleasure to report that the Supply Depart- 
ment has shown a steady and vigorous growth. Your boxes have 
increased in value from $5,104.88 to $7,498.88 or 50 per cent over the 
preceding year. 

Our efforts, during the year, were spread over both the do- 
mestic and foreign fields, and our activities included eighteen dif- 
ferent mission stations. 

The educational side has been also stressed, for we fully un- 
derstand that things material, are of little value, unless animated 
by the spiritual. I am, therefore, gratified to say that 63 Parishes 
showed their interest by devoting one Auxiliary meeting to the 
study of the supply program. 

It is interesting to note that during 1934 we enrolled five 
colored Auxiliaries in the Diocese and that they did very efficient 
work, specially in the sewing department. 

In conclusion, I assure you that it has been a privilege to serve 
as your Supply Secretary — nor can I retire without an expression 
of appreciation to you, one and all, for your loyalty and unfailing 
efforts. Specially do I wish to thank Mrs. W. B. Leftwich, of 
Durham, who has at all times been my tower of strength. 

And now I turn over the office to tha new Secretary, assuring 
her the work is both a privilege and a joy.

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE— 1934, 

Christian Social Service is the personal and practical applica- 
tion in our lives of the teachings of Jesus Christ. 

Fifty-five branches of the Woman's Auxiliary reported doing 
active work along this line. 

Certainly there are social needs in every community; it is not, 
however, the primary responsibility of each branch to develop a 
distinct program of its own, but to guide and inspire social service 
committees to familiarize themselves with the more important com- 
munity organizations. With a thorough understanding of what 
these agencies are trying to do for young boys and girls, men and 
women, there would be no trouble in getting more than adequate 
support for a social welfare program. 

It is difficult to realize the solution to some community prob- 
lems. It is hard to continue working away on others until success 
is achieved, but the courage to stay with a carefully laid plan is 
bound to be rewarded. The paid worker has only a limited time 
to give in helping to plan ways out of difficulties, while we can' 
give hours. 

Organize study groups on Social Service, using such books as 
"Building City of God" or "Building Family Foundations"— sup- 
port good clean movies — teach the Bible to Y. P. S. L. Groups. 

RUBY LEE ANDERSON, 
Christian Social Service Secretary. 



REPORT OF DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY, 1934. 

The Educational Secretary begs to report fifty-six branches, 
representing forty-six parishes, conducting educational work for 
adults during the past year. In forty-six branches the mission 
study program for the year was used. Fifty branches held discus- 
sion groups, forty-two had program meetings, fifteen conducted 
Bible classes. Twelve branches had missionary plays or pageants. 
Sixteen branches had reading clubs and twenty-four had libraries 
and book shelves. The Spirit of Missions has a representative in 
thirty-five branches. 

The Educational Secretary conducted four well-attended Insti- 
tutes on Japan in different parts of the diocese, which were en- 
thusiastically attended. Reports coming from the various branches 
show a deepened interest and clearer sense of responsibility for 
the spiritual needs of Japan. 

Representatives of the various branches attended Diocesan, 
Provincial and Interdenominational Summer Conferences. 

In our Three Year Program we plan to follow the suggestions 
that grew out of the discussion at Atlantic City, as far as possible.

Secretary of Religious Education. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 



REPORT OF THE SECRETARY OF YOUNG PEOPLE'S WORK- 
DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA. 
ANNUAL MEETING— 1935. 

There seems to be very little to report that is definitely Aux- 
iliary Work with young people since my appointment in January. 
However, I started giving half of my time to the Diocese, under the 
Department of Religious Education at the first of the year and feel 
that it is really all the same work. 

Three, three day institutes for teacher training have been held, 
five addresses to parents groups, four one hour teacher's meetings, 
a ten hour class for teachers and two five hour children's missions 
and two one day meetings have been held in different parishes in 
the Diocese. These trips, the preparing of two Diocesan News Let- 
ters, and keeping up with quite a large correspondence have filled 
my time to the brim, but I have enjoyed it all and found it so much 
more pleasant because of the backing of the Woman's Auxiliary. 
In every parish that I have visited there have been interested and 
helpful friends from the Auxiliary always ready to do whatever 
possible. 

I have corresponded" with the eight District Secretaries from 
time to time since being appointed Diocesan Secretary and have 
heard from most of them, each one expressing a desire to co- 
operate. 

One effort was made to contact every Parish Secretary through 
the District Leaders with a four point program as follows: — 
1 — A Parish Secretary in every Parish to begin her work by visit- 
ing and showing interest in the Sunday School and Y. P. S. L. 
and finding out as much as possible about each. 
2 — Read the News Letter and try to see that it is in the hands of 

other leaders. 
3 — Do all possible to awaken interest in the Lenten Offering. 
4 — Work toward a large delegation to attend the Presentation and 
Pageant for the District. 
We are now trying to arrange a meeting of the eight District 
Secretaries and the Diocesan Secretary in Greensboro to set up a 
one year program of Auxiliary work with Young People. 

My Diocesan time during the summer will be spent teaching in 
three Conferences and possibly some work in Missions and small 
parishes in the western part of the Diocese. In the Fall. I shall be 
on call again to visit parishes and missions where I am needed as 
fast as I can get to them. 

MAUDE CUTLER, 
Diocesan Secretary for Young People's Work

14 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



From 1928 until the year just past the custodian for the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina has not known the joy of recording an "in- 
crease in the United Thank Offering. The greatest loss over the 
year immediately preceding was shown in 1932 when we gave 
$989.57 less than in 1931. In 1933 the yearly loss decreased, but 
the fact brought slight comfort as the Offering was the smallest 
since 1928. But, oh, the joy of 1934! Determined to "go backward 
no longer" we came to the close of the year with the glorious gain 
of $971.47 over 1933! An increase almost exactly equal to our great 
loss of 1932. 

North Carolina's share in the Offering presented in Atlantic 
City was $13,859.22; our percentage of loss being about thn sam? 
as that shown by the whole church. But 19^4 marks a turn ; ng 
point and. please God, we shall leave of the words "loss" and "de- 
crease," — the Offering to be presented at this convention justify- 
ing my prediction. 

The Offering of our friends of the negro district is being pre- 
sented at this convention. We welcome them and look forward 
to years of service under the same leadership. It is also my privi- 
lege to report for the first time Offerings from Elkin in Forsyth- 
Rowan district, and the Chapel of Hope in Mecklenburg district. 

Sometime, speaking of the close of my term as United Thank 
Offering Custodian, I have thoughtlessly said "when I give up my 
Thank Offering." Today I marvel at those words. These three 
years are but the beginning. They have brought to me * deeper 
love, a fuller understanding, and the firm conviction that there is 
no dearer way to have a share in bringing God's Kingdom to earth.

United Thank Offering Custodian

REPORT OF AUDITORS 
April 12, 1935. 

Miss Emma J. Hall, President, 
Woman's Auxiliary 
Diocese of North Carolina, 
827 North Tryon Street, 
Charlotte, North Carolina, 

Dear Madam: 

As requested I have made an examination of the Treasurer's 
books for the twelve months period beginning January 1, 1934, and 
ending at December 31, 1934, and attach hereto schedule showing 
moneys received during the year and disbursements therefrom to- 
gether with the balance on hand in total and in each fund at the 
close of the year. 

On Schedule One, I have shown the total balance in each fund 
at the beginning of the year, the receipts by funds and disburse- 
ments from each fund and the balance remaining in the hands of 
the treasurer at December 31, 1934. 

On this schedule, also, we have shown certain transfers of funds 
which we believe are in accordance with instructions to the Treas- 
urer. 

During the year a dividend was received from the Page Trust 
company amounting to $234.33. The total amount on deposit in the 
Page Trust company when the bank was closed was $1,157.80, so 
that there is still a balance outstanding in the Pase Trust company 
amounting to $923.47, but we do not know whether there will be 
additional dividends on this item. The amount received from the 
Page Trust company has been allocated to funds as shown on 
Schedule One. 

All cash receipts have been carefully checked against bank 
statements and were found to have been properly handled and all 
disbursements are supported by canceled checks. 

This statement is intended to be comprehensive of all receipts 
applying to the year 1934, even though part of the money was not 
received by your Treasurer until 1935, and therefore could not be 
disbursed until 1935, but we have attempted to make this statement 
include all items which apply to the year 1934 even though certain 
of those receipts and disbursements were made during the year 
1935, as will be noticed on Schedule Two. 

Respectfully submitted, 

THOS. P. ZUM BRUNNEN.

REPORTS OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE. 

Both the spring meeting held at St. Timothy's, Wilson, and the 
fall meeting held at St. Mark's. Halifax, were well attended. 

Mrs. William J. Gordan, Mrs. W. W. Simms and Miss Rena 
Clarke gave such inspiring talks that we all felt that a very def- 
inite and real part of both the Annual Meeting and the General 
Convention had been given to us. 

Our district secretaries report splendid activity in all lines of 
service and loyal devotion to our Church in her need and oppor- 
tunity. 

And through all of our work in the sixteen active branches 
that constitute our district, we have tried to realize our own per- 
sonal responsibility and have felt an ever deepening need for more 
spirituality in our effort to go forward in joyous service, "Stead- 
fastly purposing to do His will." 

MRS. W. JOHNSTON KING, 

Chairman 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 39 



DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE. 

The two meetings of the District of Granville were held and 
both were well attended. At the spring meeting in Warrenton. Dr. 
Carey Montague, City Missionary of Richmond, Va.. gave a very 
inspiring address on God's Purpose for us. At the fall meeting we 
had Bishop Penick and Miss Bessie Blacknall, our own missionary 
to Alaska, to speak to us. 

We are placing special emphasis on enlisting and interesting 
our youne people in the work of the Church. There are several 
active Youne People's Service Leagues in the district and numbers 
Ox young people attend the camps at Vade Mecum. Two bus loads 
from Warrenton attended last summer. 

Through the efforts of our United Thank Offering Custodian 
many more blue boxes are being used and the offering has in- 
creased. 

Mrs. J. H. Brodie of Henderson was elected Educational Secre- 
tary at our district meeting in the fall. Various members attend- 
ed the institutes held by Mrs. Partrick and much interest was 
taken in the study book on Japan. 

Our secretaries have had good reports from the branches in 
regard to Social Service, Box Work and other activities of the 
Auxiliary- 

MRS. A. W. GRAHAM. 

Chairman 



DISTRICT OF WAKE. 

The District, of Wake reports a year of thoughtful interest and 
work among all of its branches. If we have nothing noteworthy 
to report as an accomplishment we know that our women are 
thinking more deeply of human needs and responding daily to 
calls from our midst, as well as answering all calls of our regular 
Auxiliary work. 

We started out in the Fall with a very inspirational meeting at 
St. Gabriel's Church, Selma with interesting reports from the Tri- 
ennial given us by Mrs. Theodore Partrick and Mrs. W. W. Simms. 
Miss Bessie Blacknall told us in her sweet interesting way of her 
work in Nenana. Bishop Penick was with us and urged us to be- 
come Summer Conference Conscious if we would grow and be- 
come more efficient in our work. As an outgrowth of this meeting 
the District of Wake gave $100.25 towards Miss Laura Clark's 
equipment and passage to China. We sent it with much love and 
high hopes for her new work. 

The features of our work that we think show progress are: — 
The organization and increasing interest of our young women. St. 
Hilda's Branch in the Church of the Good Shepherd and the newly 
organized St. Mary's Branch in Christ Church, groups of young 
business girls and married women thinking things out in their own 
way and doing some very fine work. Then we have a steadily 
growing interst in the work of our Religious Educational Depart- 
ment. All through the District we have planned educational pro- 
grams at all of our meetings. Our people are really thinking under 
the able leadership of Mrs. Partrick, our Educational Secretary. Her 
institute held at Christ Church in the early winter paved the way 



40 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



for intensive Lenten studies. One Branch in Raleigh has a well 
informed speaker talk to them once a month, then they have a 
round table discussion that is very stimulating. One Branch has 
built up a very intersting program around the subject "Building 
a Christian Environment." The women of the churches of the Good 
Shepherd and Christ Church, Raleigh had a very interesting joint 
meeting when Dr. Elbert Russell, Dean of the School of Religion 
at Duke University, spoke to them of his personal acquaintance 
with the Japanese people and first hand knowledge of their prob- 
lems. 

All reports show that our Christian Social Service Department 
is again active and alive to the needs of our day. All of our 
branches do their part in the relief work of their towns, caring for 
the needy, sending boxes to the orphans, visiting the jails and hos- 
pitals, and in many cases with the personal touch that shows lov- 
ing service. We have furnished milk for undernourished children, 
paid the board for two ladies at St. Luke's Home, and each branch 
clothes one or more children at the Thompson Orphanage. Head- 
ing an appeal from the Associated Charities for 385 Raleigh fam- 
ilies dropped from the Federal Relief, the Christ Church Branch 
gave a Charity Tea that brought in much needed money and clothes 
for the needy. Other branches in the city helped substantially at 
the same time. We have given gladly as He has given to us. 

We have had deep sorrow and great loss in our District during 
the past winter. One of our most beloved members, Mrs. Edwin H. 
Bost of Erwin, whose genial personality and spirit of loving service 
endeared her to all of us. Our deep sympathy goes out to Erwin 
at this time. In the going on to the other world of that rare spirit 
Theodore Partrick, we each and every one of us feel a personal 
loss that will be with us always. We feel that he was one of those 
whom God took because "He was made perfect in a little while." 
Their spirits are with us and will lead us on to increased endeavor 
for the work of God's Kingdom. 

FREDA T. WEBB, 

Chairman 



DISTRICT OF ORANGE. 

April 24, 1935. 

To know each other better has been the aim of the District of 
Orange, and this has been accomplished by numerous letters and 
personal visits. 

The Fall Meeting of the District was held in St. Philip's Church, 
Durham. Miss Emma J. Hall, our Diocesan president, was with us, 
and her inspiring address struck the keynote of the meeting. An- 
other feature was the attractive display of posters brought in by 
the different branches illustrating their work for the year. The 
nine branches reported work well planned and executed. The 
Christain Social Service work covered many activities: Orphans 
were clothed, a young girl's school expenses paid, hospitals visited, 
inmates of institutions remembered with gifts at holidays, and 
clothing and food were sent to many families. The Supply Depart- 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 



ment reported, in an excellent manner, stating that hundreds of 
garments had been cut and that much sewing had been done. 

Letters, cards, and gifts were sent regularly to Miss Eliza Whit- 
comb, our Prayer Partner. The United Thank Offering is grad- 
ually increasing, and special programs were arranged for the meet- 
ings at which this offering was taken. The Work Among the Iso- 
lated is being studied and some progress has been made in this 
field. The Educational work is becoming more systematized. 
Branches are planning more programs and many auxiliaries have 
placed printed programs in the hands of the members. One branch 
has current events reported from the Spirit of Missions, at each 
circle meeting, and department work is emphasized at the general 
meeting. Most of the branches reported using the book "Suzuki 
Looks at Japan" as a Lenten Study. One branch held a Bible 
Study during Lent. The theme was "If We Be His Disciples" and 
a heart searching study was built around this idea. 

The district shared in Miss Laura Clark's traveling expenses 
to China and sent a Christmas gift to her, and contributed to the 
shower for St. Mary's House. 

Although the District is numerically weak, it is auxiliary con- 
scious, and a spirit of friendliness prevails. 

SAZA PECK WILSON, 

Chairman 
April 24, 1935. 



DISTRICT OF GUILFORD. 

The Guilford District of the Woman's Auxiliary has two dis- 
trict meetings a year. The fall meeting was held at Spray, at 
which time we were greatly privileged in having the Rev. J. J. D. 
Hall, "Daddy Hall," as he is affectionately known, to talk to us. 

A new branch of the young women of Spray has been added 
to our district, making twelve branches. Reports showed all 
branches doing excellent work in all departments, eleven of the 
twelve reporting. 

MRS. E. L. DAVANT, 
Chairman of Guilford District 



REPORT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN DISTRICT WOMAN'S 
AUXILIARY. 

As another year adds its days to our roster, we feel that the 
work accomplished has not measured up to that planned. But as 
we look forward we pray for greater fulfillment and higher aims. 

We have had two inspiring district meetings. Our beloved 
president was with us in the spring; and at the fall meeting, we 
had the diocesan representative of our most loved object, the 
United Thank Offering. It was a cause of deep thankfulness that 
our district custodian reported a marked increase in this offering. 
No doubt the visits of two of our workers have added interest to 
this department. Miss Mary Wood McKenzie and Miss Bessie 



42 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 

Blacknall have been honored guests and have given a real knowl- 
edge of their fields. We are rejoiced to have, now, Mrs. Ethel 
Louise Byerly Simmonds, in our midst for awhile. 

The visit of Bishop Roberts, in the fall, gave opportunity to 
know more of our Domestic Missions project. 

We counted it a privilege to contribute to the fund for Laura 
Clark's passage to China and for her equipment; and were glad 
to have a share in her Christmas box, also. These contacts with 
our representatives in the lands outside our home land enrich our 
store of knowledge and prove a stronger incentive to our mission- 
ary endeavors. One parish has had the very great advantage of 
having lectures on Japan by two former missionaries to that coun- 
try, and all branches report study of the subject. Mrs. Partrick's 
Institute gave impetus to these classes. Our district was well rep- 
resented at General Convention, which was a source of inspiration, 
and we had splendid reports at our fall meeting. 

Auxiliary Day at Vade Mecum was well attended, and the 
Educational Secretary reports "more women attended summer con- 
ferences than the summer before." Increased knowledge can not 
fail to stimulate giving and praying. We believe that some of our 
branches have caught the vision of real Christian Social Service 
Uplift, by relieving physical distress, as for instance, the remark- 
able work of the Clinic at Cooleemee, and, too, by entering active- 
ly into the fight against juvenile delinquency, by studying Juvenile 
Courts, and making a map of cases in the city of Winston-Salem. 
This map was used by a group of men to start a "Big Brother 
Movement." Until we can see in our social service, the ultimate 
goal of moral purification, we are not rising to the height of its 
Christian implications. 

We rejoice to report the organization of a new branch which 
brings our number back to fourteen. 

MRS. W. S. HOLMES, 

Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG. 

Our set-up in the District of Mecklenburg is new. We have 
not had a meeting since the election of officers in the fall, so I of 
necessity will have to give an outline of our plans for the coming 
year. We hope to carry out a full auxiliary program in the District 
of Mecklenburg, with our fullest efforts directed toward enlisting 
the interest of the luke-warm or disinterested auxiliary members. 
It is not hard to visualize what could be done with the full wom- 
an power of the church when so much is being accomplished with 
only a third of its members active. 

We want to lay greater stress on the Christian Social Service 
program as outlined by the National Council. This should not be 
confused with mere material giving. We have state, county and local 
welfare agencies to take care of the material needs of our people, 
the church has something to offer that is beyond the pale of ma- 
terial giving. It offers something that the unfortunate are eager for 
and it is our duty to give. The people who need material relief 
need other things as well. Their morale is low; their perspective 
lost; and they need you with your culture; your intelligence; and 
your Christian spirit, to cheer and to encourage, and to min- 
ister to their spiritual needs as well. We plan to form committees 
in each parish to work in co-operation with the trained social serv- 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 43 



ice workers from the various welfare agencies. This offers an op- 
portunity to do real rehabilitation work right at our very doorstep. 

We are very proud of the gains made in the United Thank Of- 
fering in our district last year. It is our aim that more women may 
know the joy of giving and be brought to realize that the Thank 
Offering is a very vital force in furthering the extension of God's 
Kingdom on earth. With this in view our offering should surpass 
■my that has been made during the past three years. 

We plan to reach the Isolated of our district; not only our own 
church people but those not affiliated with any church. There are 
no doubt scores of our church people in the district who are out 
of touch with the church entirely and many more who, if given 
the opportunity, would be glad to form contacts with our church. 
When I report to you next year I hope much will have been ac- 
complished in this important phase of the auxiliary work. 

I hope these plans will go steadily forward, in addition to others 
now in the making for the extension of the young people's work 
and the box work. 

May I direct just a word to the Diocesan officers? Much of 
what a District accomplishes depends on the instruction, close co- 
operation and helpful suggestions made by the Diocesan secretaries. 
As we are new in the District of Mecklenburg we hope you will 
do your best to help us. 

MRS. R. W. BALLARD, 
Chairman, District of Mecklenburg 



REPORT OF DISTRICT OF RICHMOND. 

The District of Richmond is the smallest district in our diocese, 
but its members are faithful and interested, and endeavor in every 
way to co-operate with, and carry out the plans of the different 
departments in the Auxiliary. Two meetings have been held since 
the last report, the spring meeting in Emmanuel Church. Southern 
Pines, and the fall meeting in the Church of the Messiah, Rocking- 
ham. We were most fortunate to have had with us at both meet- 
ings our President, Miss Emma Hall, whose presence and addresses 
are always helpful and inspiring. A number of boys and girls from 
our District attended the summer camps held at Vade Mecum last 
year. Two members of the Auxiliary of the Richmond District were 
present on Auxiliary Day both at Kanuga and Vade Mecum. 

At the District Meeting in Southern Pines, two District officers 
were elected, United Thank Offering Custodian, Mrs. Henry Wall, 
Rockingham, and Supply Secretary, Mrs. Herman Hardison of 
Wadesboro. 

The fall meeting in Rockingham was well attended. Miss Hall 
brought us a wonderful message from the Triennial, which had just 
closed; this alone would have made our meeting worth while. The 
Rev. Mr. Drane from Monroe spoke on some phases of the Church's 
work in Alaska, and this address prepared us to enjoy more fully a 
visit in the spring from Miss Bessie Blacknall, one of our much 
loved missionaries to Alaska, who has now returned to her post in 
Nenana. Through the kindness of the Rev. Mr. Cheatham, a good 
many members from our district, and some friends from Monroe, 
had the pleasure of hearing Miss Blacknall speak in the Village 



44 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



Chapel at Pinehurst. Pinehurst was the place selected because 
Miss Blacknall had expressed a desire to see this spot in North 
Carolina before returning to Alaska. A very nice offering was pre- 
sented to her, to be used for some work in which she was especially 
interested, and in addition the Auxiliary in Rockingham sent her 
a book which she wished to have. 

Another outstanding event in our District was the Educational 
Institute held in Wadesboro for the Districts of Mecklenburg and 
Richmond, by Mrs. Partrick. Many of our members attended and 
all came away praising the wonderful way in which Mrs. Partrick 
conducted this Institute and filled with zeal and enthusiasm to 
carry out her plans. 

For some years we have had in our District a Secretary for 
Young People's Work, Mrs. C. C. Hudnell of Hamlet, who has done 
splendid work. 

The Rev. Edwin Bethea, who has charge of the Churches in 
Hamlet and Rockingham, was ordained to the Priesthood in the 
Church of the Messiah, Rockingham, on April 2nd. As a district 
we feel privileged and blessed to have been present at this most 
beautiful and impressive service. 

The best work in the district has been along educational and 
social service lines, but there is progress and a lively interest in 
all of the work of the Auxiliary, which is most encouraging and 
makes us hopeful of what can be accomplished in the future. 

HELOISE SMITH, 
Chairman Richmond District 



NEGRO DISTRICT. 

Since my election to this office, I have most certainly felt my 
littleness in any effort I might have put forth to fill same. The 
task has been no easy one for, to us, our ship, which we so earnest- 
ly believed moving, was held fast at shore, with all on board tramp- 
ing around as it were, causing a mere motion which we mistook for 
sailing. Since the new organization, making us one, as you have 
put it, our ship has been cut loose. We arn't very far out since last 
May, 'tis true, but we have at least caused a ripple; we have stood 
hard by and watched that ripple spread. Thus, as to what we are to 
do, we can and shall see that ripple put out to sea. 

This must not convey to you, however, that the Woman's Aux- 
iliary of our group has done nothing. They have. They have 
worked hard, earnestly and well, but as I have said, the ship was 
held fast. Yet not knowing they could not do. Since the new or- 
ganization I have had the most splendid co-operation from all 
branches. This has been determined by their constant letters ask- 
ing. "What are we to do?" I shall have to ask you to be patient 
with us, remembering well your ship has long since and always 
known a free sailing, ours has just found her sails. Your confi- 
dence in us will help to fill them. Hence, at our District Meeting, 
Saturday, I must ask our President, Miss Emma J. Hall, to make 
everything clear to those present. Even now, Madame President, I 
want you to know that you may turn on your Auxiliary's auxiliary, 
and if to you it has seemed we stopped to mend our nets, we did at 
times take them up and found therein a catch that gave us to know 
we were fishers of men. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 45 



One branch gave clothes for winter to a family of five. An- 
other clothed thirteen. Another gave hot rolls twice a week to nine 
old people. Still another clothed eleven children that they might 
attend school. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ESSIE LEE EDWARDS, 
Chairman Negro Branches 



COMMITTEE REPORTS. 

REPORT OF RECRUITING SECRETARY 

There seems a prevailing conception of the work of the Re- 
cruiting Department that it begins and ends with an effort to se- 
cure recruits for foreign fields. 

The dictionary defines recruiting to mean "to enlist for service, 
to refresh, to build up, to renew, to invigorate." Hence we see the 
duties of a Recruiting Secretary are manifold. 

Because of the appalling lack of funds, the Recruiting Secre- 
taries cannot urge, as formerly, the offering of life for the foreign 
fields, but the task still remains to make America a Christian coun- 
try. 

Domestic missions began in 1835 when Bishop Jackson Kemper 
was sent to establish the Church in Missouri and Mississippi. To- 
day the Church has spread her influence into every State in the 
Union, and yet there are in the United States nine thousand vil- 
lages with no church, and eleven million American children re- 
ceive no religious instruction whatever. 

We can equip ourselves by prayer and study, that we may be 
able to answer the call to go, WHEN funds may be secured for 
that purpose. At least we can create an atmosphere of expectancy, 
which may make it possible once more to press forward. 

There is a custom in non-Christian lands which forbids or- 
dained men to carry on direct work with women and children; 
hence the avenue of approach must be through trained women 
workers. 

The Woman's Auxiliary should be an effective agency for re- 
cruiting and for securing funds for training our women who 
have offered their lives. Surely we should see that means are pro- 
vided for the woman who offers her life. 

Though the joy of a foreign experience may be denied them, 
there are many true and real missionaries who never have the op- 
portunity of leaving their own State, their own Parishes, or maybe 
their own homes. 

Mahatma Gandhi, in a speech to a great gathering of workers, 
recently said, "I owe, and India owes, more to One who never set 
foot in India, than to any one else, — that is Jesus Christ." That 
short speech was one of the most vital ever uttered by human 
lips. Truly our Christian Churches in India are faithful to their 
trusts. In the Diocese of North Carolina, there are for the Recruit- 
ing Secretary five important objects for consideration: 
Baptism of Children 
The Church School 
The Woman's Auxiliary, 
Summer Camps, 
St. Mary's School. 



46 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



The Recruiting Secretary must endeavor to secure the baptism 
of all infants, and unbaptized adults not connected with any church. 

She must see that the children are enrolled in the Church 
School, and the adults are members of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

Of grave importance is the securing of boys and girls for Sum- 
mer camps. 

The Dioceses of the Carolinas have a wonderful college lo- 
cated in Raleigh. It should be a matter of pride, and distinctly a 
work of the Woman's Auxiliary, to influence our girls of culture, 
intelligence and refinement, to go to St. Mary's School. 

The Principal, Mrs. Ernest Cruikshank, is a woman of great 
power, and is both admired and beloved. She has a personal in- 
terest in every girl at St. Mary's. The Grade A, two years' col- 
lege course at St. Mary's is not excelled by any Nor' hern or South- 
ern college, and the honor graduate from St. Mary's can enter the 
Junior class of any of the highest grade colleges or universities, 
North or South. 

I have written the National Council for information concerning 
the need for recruits, and have the fallowing from Rev. A. B. Par- 
sons, the Associate Secretary: 

"The opportunities which are before us on the Mission Field 
never were greater. Evangelistic workers are needed. These should 
be young women of unquestioned devotion, winning personality, 
and those with the best educational preparation. They should be 
sturdy in physique, free from family responsibility or financial ob- 
ligations here or at home; and these women should be prepared to 
devote a substantial number of years to this work. It is also desir- 
able that the candidate should have had at least one year's experi- 
ence in her chosen vocation." 

May we hope that some young women in this Diocese may be 
inspired with the love and faith sufficient to be willing to go unto 
the uttermost parts of the earth, in answer to these calls, and that 
the Woman's Auxiliary will see fit to finance the venture?

It is encouraging to report that more magazines were distributed 
in 1934 than in the previous year. No doubt this is due to the re-

quests from C. C. camps and Y. M. C. A. secretaries that they be 
supplied with periodicals and magazines. 

The development of the C. C. camps presents an opportunity 
to furnish the boys with wholesome reading and we dare not pass 
it by. 

Your Chairman would like to call attention to the clergy who 
are not able to pay the subscription to a Church periodical or a 
magazine; and we can gladden their hearts by either a direct sub- 
scription or by forwarding those in our possession. 

As only fifteen branches of the Diocesan Auxiliary are par- 
ticipating in this work, we can readily see the need of forceful pres- 
entation at Auxiliary meetings. If no mention of the work has 
been made at your Auxiliary meetings, urge your president and 
librarian to write me for particulars.

REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN. 

Our Prayer Partnership Plan seems to be functioning fairly 
well. May I ask those in auxiliaries and missions all to have pray- 
er partner correspondents and not to wait only for a stated time, 
but to pray daily for their missionaries. The help and comfort this 
will give them you cannot imagine. 

Let us take this matter to ourselves more earnestly and take 
their work and their needs to our hearts and to our Master's throne 
in Prayer. 

Please everyone here who is a Prayer Partner speak to me 
while I am here. 

CLAUDIA J. ERWIN POWE, 

Chairman 



REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN OF THE WORK AMONG THE 

ISOLATED. 

A very real beginning has been made in finding isolated peo- 
ple of our Church. Forty-two have been found; and helpful con- 
tacts made, helpful to those who have gone out in the name of the 
Church and her Head as well as to those sought out. The letters 
from the branches reporting are packed full of human interest 
showing touching gratitude on the part of the people visited when 
they feel that the Church still cares for them; and often impres- 
sive loyalty. For example in Albemarle there is a woman who as a 
little child was reached by St. Timothy's Mission; and who for 
thirty-three years has been faithful to her church though for years 
deprived of her own Church services and Sunday School. Will 
some Auxiliary branch near Albemarle in some way provide this 
woman with some opportunities of some kind? 

The middle of February a suggestion of Bishop Penick's was 
sent to District Chairmen, the suggestion being to send a duplex 
postal to all rural families in the various counties seeking isolated 
Episcopalians and those not connected with any religious body. 
Mecklenburg, Guilford, and Wake promise real consideration of 



48 FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 



the plan; and Calvary Branch members, Wadesboro, District of 
Richmond are going to ask their Laymen's League to make this a 
joint project with them. 

Holy Trinity and St. Andrews, Greensboro, have to some ex- 
tent tried the plan, each sending 25 cards to rural families in Guil- 
ford county. Among the cards that have been returned to St. An- 
drews was one from an isolated Episcopal family of eight baptized 
people showing real interest and asking for Church contacts. (Mrs. 
Henry J. Thurman makes a valuable suggestion, that in the word- 
ing on these cards there shall be the request that the card be passed 
on if the recipient is not interested). St. Andrew's experience 
shows the vast possibility this plan has. The Merchants Associa- 
tion, or some group of business men in every community, can furn- 
ish a rural list to those willing to try this plan. It will of course 
cost some money to pay for the postals, 2 cents for every person 
addressed. 

Outstanding work has been done by Mrs. L. M. Carlton of the 
District of Orange: Roxboro found an isolated Mother with two 
daughters. St. Philip's Branch, Durham gave a new Prayer Book 
to this Mother who showed deep appreciation. St. Philip's is also 
going to furnish literature for the Church School of St. Mark's, 
Roxboro. Hillsboro reported several families cut off from the 
Church by distance. Invitations and offers to bring these people 
to services from time to time were extended. Pittsboro found seven 
isolated Church people and they were specially invited to services 
with instruction during Lent, the Rector giving splendid leadership. 
On Easter Pittsboro is inviting all the Episcopalians of a nearby 
town to service and dinner later. The Rector has hopes of organiz- 
ing a Church at this point; and the Pittsboro Auxiliary is offering 
its aid to eight interested women of the town if they wish to or- 
ganize an Auxiliary branch. 

Some of the ways of bringing these people again into the life 
stream of the Church being followed according to reports received 
are: regular visits, offers of a way to get to Church services from 
time to time, part in the United Thank Offering, special Sunday 
Schools for them when in sufficient numbers, letters from time to 
time, sending literature. All requests for literature should if pos- 
sible be furnished in the district. There is, however, splendid pro- 
vision made for children whose parents wish and will use Church 
School helps. 

Whenever there is real need for help in supplying clothing this 
should not be done by the Chairman, or Secretary, of the Isolated 
but should be reported to the Social Service Department of the 
Branch. 

The question has been asked, "Why is this work almost alto- 
gether in terms of rural people? In all the towns and cities of our 
State there are scattered, forgotten Episcopalians and very many 
people connected with no Church at all." Surely this is a question 
which should provoke our thoughtful consideration. Former At- 
torney General Wickersham of our own Church in an address ap- 
pearing in a Church periodical about a year ago quoted this state- 
ment from a well-known study of crime recently made, "The 
Churches could contribute much more to the important task ol 
crime prevention if they frankly faced the fact that large groups in 
every community are outside the influence of the Church." Some 
of these unchurched people are the responsibility of the Episcopal 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 49 



Church we will all agree. During the year ahead let us use our 
splendid powers in bringing into the life of our Church those scat- 
tered in rural places and those in overcrowded districts in towns, 
both our own and our share of the unchurched.

REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF INTER-RACIAL WORK 

The Negro District of the Woman's Auxiliary, under the leader- 
ship of Mrs. F. H. U. Edwards of Oxford, N. C., has proven itself 
capable of accepting its responsibilities by carrying on the work 
with a courage and earnestness of purpose that is gratifying indeed. 

Two one-day Institutes have been held — the first in Raleigh, 
N. C, at St. Ambrose, September 15, 1934, when thirty-eight dele- 
gates representing fourteen of the sixteen Negro branches met. In- 
spiring reports and generous donations for the Advance Work Fund 
and the United Thank Offering were received. Also a Discretion- 
ary Fund for the Bishop was unanimously voted. Splendid talks 
and outlines for local Branch study were offered by Mrs. Partrick, 
Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Gordon. Mrs. Simms gave an interesting 
history of the United Thank Offering. At this meeting Bishop 
Penick impressed the gathering with his explanation of the Dio- 
cesan plan and of how the facts leading to this meeting had 
stretched over a period of twelve years. He cautioned them that 
their responsibilities would be greater in the future. 

The second meeting held in Charlotte at St. Michael's Church, 
April 27th, 1935, was excellent and the interest in all branches of 
the Diocesan work keen. Miss Hall spoke of the splendid piece of 
work being done by supporting an Indian Girls' School. Mrs. Ross 
Sigmon made a special trip from Salisbury to explain clearly to 
the members the new budget system which was appreciatively re- 
ceived. Each member of the Branches was given an opportunity to 
invite discussion concerning Auxiliary Work and its phases which 
included a conference for the work of 1935. After a stirring address 
by Miss Hall in behalf of the Julia C. Emery School, Liberia, the 
District pledged $50.00 for this School. 

Miss Esther Brown, of New York City, arrived in Charlotte 
early in October 1934 and visited each branch of the Diocese. Valu- 
able information concerning future plans and work was given. 

With earnestness and an eagerness of purpose this District 
offers itself for every phase of the Woman's Auxiliary Work in the 
Diocese, ever keeping in mind our keynote, "Forward Be Our 
Watchword." 

MRS. ERNEST ELLISON, 

Chairman.

FOREWORD 



IT is with a profound sense of gratitude that I 
acknowledge the loyalty to the cause of Christ 
that the Woman's Auxiliary of this Diocese con- 
tinues to show with the constancy of true disciple- 
ship. Compressed within the covers of this lit- 
tle book is the inspiring record of another year's 
achievement. The reports contain an array of 
facts accomplished, and are eloquent in their re- 
straint and brevity. The plans for continuing 
and expanding work are wisely and courageously 
drawn. I commend this Journal to the careful 
and prayerful study of all those who need an ac- 
curate manual of reference for every phase of 
Auxiliary work, and who also aspire to accom- 
pany a band of faithful women as they pray and 
study and give and labor to share with others 
the good news of Eternal Life. 

EDWIN A PENICK, 
Bishop of North Carolina. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



IN MEMORIAM 
JULY 22, 1936 

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY IN THE LIFE OF THE 

CHURCH 

OUR IDEAL 

That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being 
rooted and grounded in love, 

May be able to comprehend with all saints what is {fie breadth, 
and length, and depth, and height; 

An to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that 
ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. — Eph. iii : 17, 18, 19. 

What does it mean to be a member of the Woman's Auxiliary 
to the National Council? Taking a mite-box, going 1 to a meeting 
now and then, sewing for a missionary box, attending an occasional 
misskmary service? Often it does mean just that; sometimes it 
means much less; but it can mean infinitely more. 

Over and above these "practical things" it ought to mean a 
world-wide view of what the Church of God is sent to do, and a 
deep and real sense of personal responsibility for sharing in that 
mission. Do we think of the Church as the Body of Christ, doing 
the mind of its Head. Are we, as members of the Auxiliary, con- 
stantly seeking to learn the mind of Christ, that we may obey it in 
our own lives and interpret it to others? The question is not so 
much, What are we doing? as, How are we doing it? Do we work 
on our knees, doing our work so consciously in the presence of God 
that it receives His blessing, talking over everything with Him 
before we try to do it? Do we ask Him always to show us what 
His Will is, and to empty us of self, that we may be filled full of 
Him, so that He may work in and through us? 

We need great ideals. We need to realize the Christ working 
in us. We need to commit ourselves to infinite things, and then 
to put such a spirit into the Church as shall cause the things done 
to be done in the spirit of Christ. If we all would put the em- 
phasis in the right place it would be a tremendous source of power. 
Are we, as members of the Auxiliary, vitally conscious that we are 
sharing in the work of bringing souls out of darkness into His 
marvelous light? All the religions earth ever had were trying to 
find out God. No one is wicked because he is a Buddhist or a 
Hindu. He is only waiting for his answer, and Christianity is 
his answer. This is our priceless possession, and the world is 
pleading that we give it to all men. The revelation of God must 
be given to all men because Christ is praying always that they 
may know the Father so that they may come back home again. 
Does it fire our imagination, and kindle our zeal, and deepen our 
compassion, to realize that our Father's heart is breaking because 
so many of His children do not know? To this high task we are 
called. iHe has planned no other way. He has given us the world 



FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



to win for Him. Our hearts ought to sing all the time for joy 
that He has blessed us with the privilege of being workers to- 
gether with Him. 

Is this what it means to us to be members of the Woman's 
Auxiliary? If it means this, we shall go to our meetings with our 
minds and hearts full of the news and needs of the field; and 
meetings will no longer be dull and uninspiring. If it means this, 
the sewing for our missionary boxes will not be irksome, for our 
imagination will picture the place to which each box is going and 
the people to whom it will bring joy. If it means this, every 
Eucharist will become a service of intercession in which we join 
our prayers with Christ's for all the souls whom He has redeemed 
with His most precious Blood. 

Even hours of enforced idleness and pain can be made to count 
for the Kingdom by prayers, broken and fragmentary though they 
be, for all those who suffer without relief or hope. 

Let us identify our work more closely with the field. All we 
need is a little imagination to see that making bandages for a 
far-off hospital is as romantic an exploit as binding up a broken 
Chinese head. It is all part of the same work. The missionary 
nurse, moving daily amid sights and sounds of suffering, does 
not speak flippantly about her mission; yet how often we jest 
about ours. Is it because we do not realize, or do not believe, that 
we are all missionaries, the sent ones of the King, and not our 
field but our faithfulness matters?

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



A MESSAGE FROM MISS LINDLEY 

The end of work coming either after a year or a longer 
period is an opportunity to measure what we do. Because I 
always think of the Woman's Auxiliary of North Carolina as 
one of the branches ready for new and greater efforts, I am using 
a quotation from Dr. Barry: 

"Christianity is the worship of the Father the vision of God 
as revealed in Christ. For the modern mind this is the crucial 
difficulty. Nearly all the forces that play upon us conspire to 
make belief in God difficult. In the old world everyone believed 
in God: that is perhaps the most signal difference between ancient 
and modern history. The task of the earliest Christian preachers 
was to persuade men who believed in God to accept Christ's inter- 
pretation of Him. The task of the Church today is almost the 
opposite: to help people who at different levels and in various 
degrees believe in Christ to win conviction about God. The re- 
vival, and even, it may be, the survival of Christianity in the 
world today depends on its success in this enterprise." 

As I read Mr. Barry's statement I realized the deepening 
emphasis of the Church's Mission, and because I had had the priv- 
ilege of watching the work in North Carolina I am daring to use 
this impressive quotation as something by which the Auxiliary 
may be challenged anew and may go on to even greater things in 
the future. 

Affectionately yours, 

GRACE LINDLEY. 



FIFTY-FOUETH ANNUAL REPORT 



Resolution adopted at the Triennial Meeting of the Woman's 

Auxiliary, 1934, Atlantic City, N. J. 

CLOSER RELATIONS BETWEEN HOME DIOCESE AND 

MISSIONARIES 

Whereas, It has been found that there is a wide difference in 
the methods of maintaining a personal touch with the missionaries 
who have gone out from the several dioceses, and 

Whereas, Some missionaries seem to receive much more per- 
sonal attention than others, 

Be it Resolved: That this Triennial Meeting assembled recom- 
mend to the diocesan officers of the Woman's Auxiliary that the 
name of each missionary who has gone out from the diocese, to- 
gether with that of her home parish and her address in the mis- 
sionary district where she is serving, with her occupation and 
United Thank Offering designation, if that be the case, be printed 
in the Annual Report, or given suitable publicity in order that 
the women of the diocese may establish friendly relations with 
her, and 

Be it Further Resolved: That it is recommended to these 
same officers that the dates of furlough and vacation of such 
missionaries be secured through definite correspondence with them, 
in order that plans may be made to make their return to their 
home diocese a pleasant and profitable holiday. If special train- 
ing is desired, we recommend that information and advice be 
secured from the Church Missions House in order that they may 
be guided without loss of time as to the best ways of advancing: 
in their profession or work.

Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross,

Who livest and reignest with the Father and the »Holy Ghost, ever

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our

pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all Nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for 
His dear sake. Amen. 



For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen.

A Prayer for the Diocese 

O God, whose love reacheth unto the ends of the world, Bless, 
we pray Thee, this Diocese ; and grant that all who share its bene- 
fits may show forth Thy glory by deeds and by gifts for the 
spread of Thy Kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons 
of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties com- 
mitted to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace 
and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten 
their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless 
all who have contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray 
Thee, a never-failing succession of benefactors whose names may 
be perpetuated through all generations as a blessed memory, and 
their good deeds be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 



The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, 
we beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, especially 
in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poorj 
the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens 
with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 
Amen. 



Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep. Whose 
flocks are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the 
bope of a better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep in 
scattered places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; Who 
art with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world 
without end. Amen. 



For Religious Education 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, 
the Truth and the Life, Grant that we, looking unto Him may set 
forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 11 



For Social Service 

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring: us together in love and unity, 
making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest, 
whd dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and 
joy of the citizens of that holy city. Amen. 



The Forward Movement 

We pray Thee, God, for Thy Blessing upon the Forward 
Movement of Thy Church. Use it, we beseech Thee, to open our 
eyes to the needs of men for the Gospel of Christ, and to the 
opportunities that lie before the Church to extend His Kingdom. 
Stir up, O Lord, the wills of all Thy people to share in this work 
with gladness of heart and self-sacrificing spirit. Let not our 
purpose slack, but let the kingdoms of this world become the King- 
dom of our God and of His Christ. Amen. 



For the United Thank Offering 

O Lord, our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth 
more laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special 
grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the Field, 
and draw us into closer fellowship with them. Dispose the hearts 
of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou has given to 
them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of 
prayer and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to the coming of 
Thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can en- 
able us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dig- 
nity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our 
leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; to those 
so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, 
and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of 
every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 



Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 
workers in Thy service: bless we pray Thee Thy servant, . . . . 
and prosper her in the work to which Thou has called her. Grant 
her sufficient wisdom for every task, Thy gracious help in time of 
trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and the power to 
accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name and for Thy 
glory through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." Amen. 



12 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



Thanksgiving 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee humble 
thanks for all the great things Thou has done and are doing for 
the children of men; for the opening of heathen lands to the light 
of Thy truth; for making paths unto the deep waters and high- 
ways in the desert; for knitting nation to nation in the bond of 
fellowship, and for the planting of Thy Church in all the earth. O 
merciful Father, in whom the whole family is named, fill full our 
hearts with grateful love for this Thy goodness, granting grace 
henceforth to serve Thee better and more perfectly to know Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



The Re-dedication 

Realizing that only through personal dedication to Jesus 
Christ, our Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human en- 
deavors, we re-dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord Jesus 
Christ, to making the strength of our deeds the measure of our 
Faith; to a sincere and simple effort in our daily living to follow 
with humility the example of our Saviour.

ANNUAL MEETING 

1936 

Keynote: "Christ For the World" 

Minutes 

The Fifty-fourth Annual Meeting of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary to the National Council of the Diocese of North 
Carolina convened Tuesday morning, April 21st, at eleven 
o'clock, in St. Philip's Church, Durham. Following the 
opening hymn and prayers, the Rev. David Yates, rector 
of St. Philip's made a short address of welcome. 

The President called the meeting to order and the roll 
was called by the secretary. 

Mrs. Harold Bird extended a welcome to the meeting 
for St. Philip's Branch and Mrs. T. P. Thomas of Wilson 
responded in the name of the Auxiliary. 

As a token of the affection and regard of the Auxiliary, 
a set of vestments was presented by the President to 
Bishop Penick, who graciously accepted the gift. 

The President's annual address followed, in which she 
gave a resume of the activities of the past year and work 
accomplished, closing with an earnest appeal for a more 
zealous missionary spirit and a truer discipleship. 

The following committees were appointed: 

Credentials — Mrs. Ross M. Sigmon, Chairman; Mrs. C. H. 
Shipp, Mrs. J. E. Bethea.

maker, Mrs. Henry Bourne.

Wilkes, Mrs. W. L. Long. 

Diocesan officers then made their reports, which were 
ordered incorporated in the year book. 

A recommendation was made by the Treasurer that 
the budget for 1937 be revised, eliminating the Auxil- 
iary's pledge to Japan, changing the pledge to Liberia 
to $500, thereby releasing $1000 to be used for salary 
of nurse at Anvik, Alaska. This recommendation was 
accepted by the meeting. 



24 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 

The noon-day prayers and meditation were conducted 
at twelve o'clock by Miss Grace Lindley, National Ex- 
ecutive Secretary of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

Bishop Penick delivered his message to the women of 
the diocese at the close of the noon-day prayers, remind- 
ing the women that the primary purpose of the Auxiliary 
is the extension of the Kingdom of God and warning 
them that there is grave danger of over-diversification 
of activities. The Bishop also asked the women to ex- 
tend their "mothering care" over the young people with 
special emphasis on their missionary education ; to have 
a neighborly attitude toward the Negro branches ; to at- 
tend the Vade Mecum conferences for women and to take 
part in the parochial programs for the Forward Move- 
ment. 

The Credentials Committee reported 53 branches rep- 
resented with 125 delegates present, including members 
of the Executive Board. 

At 1:15 P.M. the meeting adjourned for lunch and re- 
opened at 2:15, immediately after which election of presi- 
dent took place. Mrs. W. J. Gordon's name was proposed 
by the nominating committee and the meeting voted 
that rules be suspended and the secretary cast the ballot 
for Mrs. Gordon, thereby unanimously electing Mrs. W. 
J. Gordon President of the Auxiliary and Representative 
on the Diocesan Executive Council . 

Introduced by Bishop Penick, Miss Grace Lindley spoke 
to the meeting, opening her talk with a word of apprecia- 
tion for the place occupied by the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina in the general work of the Church. She spoke of 
some of the characteristics of the Auxiliary and its prob- 
lems, emphasizing the fact that Christ's way of living is 
the solution of all our problems and that the Church's 
mission includes world peace. Miss Lindley reminded 
the Auxiliary that they should be concerned about the 
spiritual life of young people, the training of workers 
for service at home as well as abroad, the work of the 
Church in rural districts and the financial crisis in the 
Church. In closing she emphasized that in big things 
and small, it is not what we do but what we are that 
counts — "being is more important than doing." 

Invitation was extended by Christ Church, Raleigh, for 
the 1937 Annual Meeting, which was accepted by the 
Convention. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 25 

Mrs. J. P. Watters then spoke in behalf of the North 
Carolina Churchman urging everyone to subscribe, read 
and create interest in the diocesan publication. 

Reports from chairmen of the following special com- 
mittees were read: Prayer Partnership Plan, Recruiting, 
Church Periodical Club, and Work with Isolated. 

Referring to Miss Lindley's address, Miss Hall remind- 
ed the Auxiliary that while the deficit in the budget of 
the General Church had been over-subscribed, the fact 
that the pledges had not yet been paid must not be over- 
looked. 

The President read a letter from Miss Bessie Black- 
nail, missionary at Nenana, Alaska, telling of the crisis 
in the work there. In the discussion that followed the 
reading of this letter, it was agreed that something must 
be done to send Miss Blacknall a helper. The roll was 
called and over $300 was pledged by the branches towards 
this project. 

At 4:45 P.M. the meeting adjourned and a pilgrimage 
was made to Ephphatha Church, where the Rev. Roma 
C. Fortune held a brief service, interpreted by his son, 
Mr. James Fortune. 

Evening service was held at eight o'clock in St. Philip's 
Church, the sermon being preached by the Rt. Rev. W. 
Blair Roberts of the Missionary District of South Dakota. 
Bishop Roberts in a stirring address told of his work 
among the Indians of South Dakota and what the Gospel 
of Jesus Christ means in their lives. 

At 7:30 on Wednesday morning the annual corporate 
communion was celebrated, Bishop Penick, celebrant, as- 
sisted by Bishop Roberts. The United Thank Offering 
was presented and prayers made in commemoration of 
the departed. 

The meeting convened at 9:45 Wednesday morning, 
April 22nd, with opening prayers by the Rev. Frank E. 
Pulley. The minutes of Tuesday's meeting were read 
and approved. 

The president then called for written reports from 
the districts, which were turned in by the District Chair- 
men, to be included in the Year Book. 

It was moved, seconded and duly carried that notes be 
sent to Miss Heloise Smith, Chairman of the District of 
Richmond, and Mrs. F. H. U. Edwards, Chairman of the 
Negro District, expressing regret for their absence from 
the meeting on account of illness. 



26 FIFTY-FOUETH ANNUAL REPORT 

Bishop Penick spoke a few words of appreciation for 
the Bishop Purse of $900 given him bv the Auxiliary in 
1935. 

Mrs. Whitmel Webb in a short talk expressed appreci- 
ation in the name of the Auxiliary for three years of de- 
voted service given by Miss Emma Hall, the retiring 
president. A rising vote of love and appreciation was 
given Miss Hall by the Convention. 

Bishop Roberts spoke informally of his work in South 
Dakota and the part the Woman's Auxiliary has had in 
it. 

Reports on the diocesan objectives followed. Mr. H. F. 
Kloman, Chaplain at St. Mary's School, Raleigh, made 
an interesting talk about the school and the way it is 
building Christian character. Miss Alice Alexander, 
Alumnae Secretary, spoke for the Alumnae Association. 

The Rev. W. H. Wheeler, Superintendent of the Thomp- 
son Orphanage, made a short talk about that institution. 
He reported 113 children in the Orphanage, all well pro- 
vided for. Mr. Wheeler then introduced Tom Myers, stu- 
dent at the University of North Carolina, who graduated 
from the Orphanage in 1935. Mr. Mvers spoke with deep 
appreciation of what the Orphanage has meant to him. 

Miss Margaret Williams, Student Secretary at St. 
Mary's House, W. C. U. N. C, introduced Miss Penelope 
Watkins, member of the student vestry, who told of the 
aims and work of this student center. Miss Williams 
then gave a detailed report of her work and the needs of 
St. Mary's House. 

Vade Mecum was represented by the Rev. David Yates 
who spoke enthusiastically about the summer camps and 
conferences. He said the Auxiliary Conference will be 
from August 24th to 29th. 

Noon-day prayers and meditation were lead by Miss 
Grace Lindley. 

The president read again Miss Bessie Blacknall's letter 
in order that those who were absent when this letter was 
read on Tuesday night might have an opportunity to 
consider this matter and express their wishes. The roll 
was called and over $400 was pledged. On the strength 
of these pledges, the Convention voted to send Miss 
Blacknall a message telling her that the women of the 
Diocese of North Carolina will stand behind her and see 
that she has a helper. 

The budget of $6600 for 1937 was presented by the 
Treasurer and adopted by the Convention.

Miss Annie Gray Burroughs, returned missionary from 
Liberia, spoke most interestingly of the work at Cape 
Mount, exhibiting bead work, basketry and weaving done 
by the girls at the House of Bethany. 

A motion was made and duly carried to send greetings 
from the Annual Meeting to the Methodist women in 
convention assembled in Durham. 

Mrs. R. N. Wilson, Chairman of the Committee on 
Findings, made the following report: 



REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON FINDINGS FROM THE 
DISCUSSION 

Mrs. R. N. Wilson, Chairman 

1. That the opening hymn expressed the keynote of the con- 
vention. 

2. That the President's message as always was inspiring, 
six new branches being a tangible evidence of Miss Hall's de- 
voted service. 

3. That in spite of the excellent educational institutes and the 
systematic study course, there is yet lacking the proper emphasis 
on Bible Study and Prayer Groups. 

4. That Miss Lindley's inspiring messages have given us a 
new vision of service and challenged us to use the Auxiliary as 
an avenue for greater service to all mankind, realizing that vic- 
tory is truly in Christ Jesus. 

5. That the Bishop's message came as a timely warning to 
safeguard the real purpose of the Auxiliary. 

6. That the expeditious proceedings of the elections proved 
the advisability of last year's resolution. 

7. That the visit to Ephphatha Church made us thankful for 
the privilege of having a share in this work. "I will sing and 
give praise with the best member I have." 

8. That there has been repeated expression of our responsi- 
bility for prayerful study of the needs of our young people and 
a determined effort to meet their need. 

9. That we feel deeply concerned about Miss Bessie Blacknall 
in her hour of need and we are determined to send her help. 

10. That we are indeed thankful for the work being done in our 
schools, camps, and orphanage. 

11. That from the attractive word picture presented by Miss 
Annie Gray Burroughs, we find our work in Liberia in a healthy 
condition and we feel thankful for our share in promoting this 
worth while project. 

12. That Bishop Roberts gave us a re-valuation of our mis- 
sionary work in terms of Life rather than material objectives. 
That life, that abundant Life, Christ's gift to us, can and must 
be given to God's children everywhere. "Thy Kingdom come, Thy 
will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven." 

13. That the intent and purpose of this convention has been, 
"To know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free."

sor sympathetically the activities of our young people by exempli- 
fying the Church's mission in their own active Christian living. 

8. Whereas, Miss Emma Hall in her wise administration has 
simplified, clarified and enlarged the objectives of our Auxiliary 
work, and by her devotion and spiritual vision has inspired us to 
more consecrated service: Therefore, be it resolved: That this 
meeting express its deep appreciation of Miss Hall's leadership, 
realizing that she has truly been among us as one who has served 
faithfully and well. 

Mrs. W. S. Holmes, Chairman of the Courtesy Com- 
mittee, read the following report, which was adopted by 
the meeting: 

The Courtesy Committee wishes to express their appreciation 
for the privilege of saying "thank you" to all who have so won- 
derfully contributed to making this convention a great one. 

We wish to thank the parish of St. Philip's for its cordial 
invitation, its gracious welcome and thoughtful provision for our 
comfort. To the rector, for his words of greeting; the committee 
on transportation, for their generous lending of their time and 
cars; the choir and organist, who made our services more beauti- 
ful ; the altar committee, for the beauty of the flowers ; the sweet 
young girls who acted as pages: — to all of these, we say thank 
you heartily. 

The setting was perfect for the wonderful program prepared 
by our beloved retiring President, and to her we express our grat- 
itude, not only for this program, but for her untiring zeal, during 
the years of her administration, in helping shape our policies so 
that we feel a distinct advance during her term of office. We 
thank Mrs. Zachary for her splendid work as secretary. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 29 



To our own Bishop, we are indebted for his unfailing support 
and timely admonition. 

We have been most happy to have our National Executive 
Secretary, Dr. Grace Lindley, and we feel deep gratitude to her 
for showing us the joy of the freedom of service to the risen, vic- 
torious Christ, our Lord and Master. 

Bishop Roberts told us interesting facts which made us re- 
joice that we had had a small part in so great a work through 
our Domestic Missionary project. 

Miss Burroughs gave us a little of the atmosphere of the 
Liberian project, and we thank her for the exhibition of handi- 
work, as well as her interesting talk. 

The privilege of worshipping in Ephphatha Church concen- 
trated our attention on this miracle of achievement. 

For all of these arrangements, we earnestly thank the Presi- 
dent and branch of St. Philip's Church. 

We would not forget our indebtedness to the local press for 
efficiently covering our proceedings. 

Looking forward to next year in Christ Church, Raleigh, we 
submit this report of thankfulness. 

The United Thank Offering presented at this meeting 
was announced as being $2,744.87. 

The minutes of this meeting were read and approved, 
the new president duly installed, and all business having 
been finished, the fifty-fourth Annual Meeting of the 
Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina was 
adjourned. 



Respectfully submitted, 
Mildred J. Zachary, Secretary. 



30 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 

THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS TO THE CONVENTION 
OF 1936 

I am filled with mixed emotions as I present this my 
last report as your President. I have many regrets for 
the failures and things that I have left undone, but I 
also have deepest gratitude for all the enrichment of 
the privilege of working with you, and I wish to assure 
you the experience has been so deep, so rich and so re- 
warding, and has brought a joy that will remain with me 
always. Some one has said that what we most need in 
the work of the Woman's Auxiliary is leaders, but I feel 
the great need is followers, and that is what you have 
been. All the pledges of our challenging program have 
been paid in full, two appealing specials have been com- 
pleted, and our United Thank Offering has made a sub- 
stantial gain. 

I attended two meetings of the Provincial Board, the 
Synod Meeting at Lexington, Ky., the Leader's Confer- 
ence at New Orleans, La., Auxiliary Day at Kanuga, 
eleven District Meetings, three Executive Board Meet- 
ings, four meetings of the Executive Council, the Dio- 
cesan Convention and twenty-five Branch meetings. 

The Auxiliary shared in the World Day of Prayer and 
the reports showed that the Day of Prayer (Armistice 
Day) was observed throughout the diocese. 

I am happy to report six new branches organized and 
two revived this year, namely : the Frances Hunt Branch 
at Lexington, Betty Martin Branch at Leaksville, Christ 
Church Branch at Albemarle, St. Andrew's Branch at 
Leaksville, Christ Church Branch at Albemarle, St. An- 
drew's Branch at Charlotte, Chapel of Hope Branch at 
Charlotte, Business Women's Branch at High Point, and 
St. Mary's, Speed, and St. Peter's, Salisbury, (Catherine 
Bourne Branch) revived. We welcome them into the joy 
of service in the Auxiliary. 

The work of our church in Latin America was presented 
at four splendid Educational Institutes, promoted by Mrs. 
J. P. Watters, our Educational Secretary, and led bv Dr. 
A. M. Sherman. The offering from the classes on Latin 
America is to be given to the Bishop of Mexico. 

The Executive Board is making a vital recommenda- 
tion to you in regard to a change in one of our pledges 
with reference to the work in Alaska, which I wish to 
heartily endorse. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 31 

A resolution was passed at the Synod Meeting that we 
always use the full name of the United Thank Offering 
and not the initials U. T. 0. Another resolution was 
passed to ask the editor of the Spirit of Missions to have 
the August or September Spirit of Missions a United 
Thank Offering Number, in order that we might use it 
in our programs before our fall ingathering. A resolu- 
tion was also offered asking that as Church women we 
use Christmas cards with a spiritual significance. The 
resolution passed, that I am sure comes with tremendous 
import to us all, was a resolution on Peace, asking that 
Diocesan and Parish officers urge all Churchwomen to 
spend some time each day in Church or at home in prayer 
and meditation for Peace, and to join some recognized or- 
ganization working for Peace. Let us work and pray, 
realizing that no nation was ever made secure by arms, 
that preparation for war leads to war, and that it is 
friendship, understanding and good-will that guarantee 
peace. 

Let us remember that the missionary urge is an in- 
evitable expression of living Christianity and that we 
have no other end to serve, save the great end of giving 
the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. Missions is the 
biggest business in the world, but not many understand 
this truth, or the "King's business" would not struggle 
along so poorly supported or so harshly criticized. Our 
task is to clear the way for a better interpretation of the 
meaning of the Son of God. Let us put the Cross in the 
place of our question marks and doubts, and follow in 
the way He leads for 

"Not only by blue Galilee 
Did He the leper cleanse, the dead 
Raise into life and all hearts 
His matchless glory shed. 
Today He speaks in homes of men, 
To heal each spirit sick with sin 
And at the door o± every life, 
He stands and seeks to enter in." 

We sing "0 Master, let us walk with Thee," forgetting 
the permission is ours, to avail ourselves is the diffi- 
culty. In deep humility let us pledge ourselves in the 
coming year to pause each day at noon and pray from 
our hearts, "Thy Kingdom Come." 

At the close of an undertaking we weigh achievement 
against the unaccomplished tasks. Inevitably there is 
regret and disappointment over hopes unrealized and 



32 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 

tasks uncompleted, but in that way lies discouragement 
and that is not the Christian way. One who stood in the 
shadow of Calvary said with sublime audacity, "Be of 
good cheer, for I have overcome the world," and He, as 
a citizen of Eternity could say such words because of 
His divine faith in us. We have not yet realized the ful- 
filment of His assurance because we are slow to answer 
His call to service. The challenge of the Church today 
is more imperative than ever before, the need greater; 
the menace to Christianity is not denial of God, but in- 
difference and absorption in the material interests which 
dull our ears and dim our eyes to His summons. 

My prayer for us all is that we might, like St. Matthew 
of old, hear and heed His voice. 

"I heard Him say, 'Come follow,' that was all. 
I cast a glance about my tax-booth stall, 
My gold grew dim, my heart went after Him, 
I rose to join Him, letting the coins fall. 
Who would not follow, if he heard Him call." 



REPORT OF SECRETARY 

The secretary has attended meetings of the Executive Board 
sent out notices of same and kept minutes. Copies of minutes 
were sent to absent members. 

The president's monthly letter to the branch presidents has 
been mailed out each month with various enclosures, such as edu- 
cational material, programs for Prayer Days, prayer leaflets, 
pledge cards, report blanks, etc. 

Copies of program and return post cards were mailed for 
use of delegates to the Annual Meeting. 

Reports from the branches show: 

Number of branches having Corporate Communions 74 

Number of branches having Intercessory Days 66 

Number of branches having Quiet Days 67

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 



REPORT OF SUPPLY SECRETARY 1935 

It would be impossible for me to give this report without first 
expressing deep appreciation to our beloved President for the 
spiritual inspiration, and help she has given me at all times. 

The whole hearted interest and co-operation which has been 
manifested in the Diocese Supply Department is very encouraging, 
and the work has continued to grow. 

This year an extra box was assigned to us from Headquar- 
ters and was sent to the Brent Hospital, Zamboanga, Philippine 
Islands. 

We were also privileged to share in the opening of the Julia 
C. Emery Hall, Bromley, Liberia. 

Letters of great appreciation from the recipients of our boxes, 
make us realize more than ever the importance of our work, and 
inspire us to greater effort. 

Boxes of second-hand clothing, sent to the Missions, have been 
estimated at the value set on them by the branches, and only 
the transportation charges added in this report. 

We are indebted to St. Philip's Branch, Durham, for the splen- 
did work they have done in cutting 600 garments. 

The stress that has been laid on the educational feature of 
the work is bearing fruit, and 76 branches report having had pro- 
grams and study classes along this line. 

We look forward with grateful hearts to another year of 
service, and are filled with a desire to do better and more faithful 
work. 

CORINNA GANT. 
Vice-President and Supply Secretary.

34 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE SECRETARY 

The Church exists for the specific purpose of saving humanity. 
"I am come that ye might have life and have it more abundantly." 
"I am come to seek and to save that which was lost." The Church 
has been very remiss in some phases of Christian Social Service. 
I am constrained to ask the question, Can it be possible that the 
Church is so busy saving' its own soul that it hasn't time to save 
the souls of boys and girls, men and women who have strayed 
from its fold? 

Outside the Church there are many fine groups serving youth 
today. The Boy and Girl Scouts have extended their magnificent 
character building into young manhood and young womanhood. 
The boys' and girls' clubs of many cities open doors of opportunity 
for happy development. Our Young People's Service League has 
a marvelous field for service. But now is the time not only to 
save bodies, but to win a soul for Christ. I beseech you to accept 
this responsibility. The door is standing open. Those who build 
for the future must build youth. 

I urge upon you the importance of making some one's need 
your vital concern. Take a child under your care; feed and clothe 
a needy family; give relief to mind and body and and soul of de- 
spairing individuals. Bring to them hope, courage and a new 
lease on life. Our program should embrace the community, the 
schools, the organized groups within our community and the in- 
dividual. 

RUBY LEE ANDERSON, 
Christian Social Service Secretary. 



REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY 

1935 

Comparison of the report of last year with the total of ac- 
tivities handed in now shows a healthy increase in almost every 
activity, with the exception of the reading circles, which fell off 
in number. 

71 branches reported from 59 parishes that there had been 
14 representatives sent to summer conferences (this shortage due 
probably to the necessity of keeping Vade Mecum closed). The 
Educational Program was followed in 57 branches, reports came 
of 16 who held Bible classes, 51 program meetings, and 53 study 
classes. Five branches had prayer circles, 3 had reading clubs 
and during the summer, 15 produced missionary plays or pageants, 
34 had reference libraries or book shelves. Committees or repre- 
sentatives were appointed from 11 branches to help in adult edu- 
cation, 30 to encourage and aid the young people and 27 for the 
Church School. 

The Institutes held by Dr. Sherman on Latin-America in three 
centers in January were enthusiastically attended and great in- 
terest promised in the study classes for this year. 

I cannot stress too greatly the necessity for a threefold edu- 
cation in our work towards spiritual development, in devotional 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 35 



services, in prayer circles, in reading the Bible, the Forward 
Movement leaflets, and other books along that line, in consecrated 
attendance at public worship and in encouragement of religion in 
the home; the historical background of our Church, with the in- 
spiration to be gleaned from the lives of those who lived and died 
that we might have Christianity today; and the comprehensive 
knowledge of the present program of the Church at home and 
abroad, in parish and mission, with its far reaching aim to in- 
fluence all sides of life towards the coming of Christ's Kingdom. 
Surely, if we were to educate ourselves along these lines, the 
Church, with all of its power for bringing to the world the Life 
Abundant, would go forward! 

SADIE T. WATTERS, 
Secretary of Religious Education. 



REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN SECRETARY OF 
YOUNG PEOPLE'S WORK FOR 1935-36 

The Department of Young People's Work functions in much 
the same way as the other Departments of the Woman's Auxiliary; 
the main difference being that the Secretary is paid by the Auxil- 
iary and the Diocesan Department of Religious Education to give 
full time to the work. 

The term, Young People as used in our organization covers 
the period from birth to adulthood, furthering Parental Training, 
the work of the Little .Helpers Department, the Church School, 
Young People's Service League, and any other educational agen- 
cies of the Church for the young people. 

The eight District Secretaries for Young People's Work are 
as follows: 

Edgecombe — Mrs. Henry Borne, Tarboro, N. C. 

Granville — Mrs. Susan W. Adams, Oxford, N. C. 

Wake— Miss Pressly Walsh, St. Mary's School, Raleigh, N. C. 

Orange — Mrs. Harvey Williamston, 107 E. Markham Ave. 
Durham, N. C. 

Guilford — Miss Elizabeth Gorden, Spray, N. C. 

Forsyth-Rowan — Mrs. George S. White, Lexington, N. C. 

Mecklenburg — -Mrs. C. L. Rowe, 2236 Crescent Ave., Char- 
lotte, N. C. 

Richmond — Mrs. C. C. Hudnell, Hamlet, N. C. 

These District Secretaries are working through the Parish 
Young Peoples Secretaries, if this officer has been appointed, if 
not through the President or Educational Secretary. Two con- 
ferences have been held by the Diocesan Secretary at which five 
District Secretaries and three District Chairmen were present. 
Two of the Secretaries absent from these meetings have been con- 
tacted personally and one by letter. 

The Five Major Objectives Set Up In the Conferences Are as 
follows : 

1 — To further Teacher and Parental Training Institutes in each 
District. 



36 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



2 — To aid in every way possible in sending Counsellors of Young 
People's Service League to Summer Conferences for training. 

3 — To work toward getting Little Helpers Secretaries appointed 
in Parishes where there are none, and creating interest in the 
Work of the Little Helper's Department. 

4 — To further Missionary Education especially through the five 
Missionary Offerings Little Helpers — Birthday Thank Offer- 
ing — Diocesan Offering for the Deaf Work — Christmas Box 
Offering — Lenten Offering. 

5 — To help with finding the isolated children in our Diocese so 
that all parents may have help in the Christian Education of 
their children. 

MAUDE CUTLER, 
Diocesan Secretary of Young People's Work. 



REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 
For the Year 1935 

1934— Collected after Convention $ 123.29 

1935— Spring Offering 2,659.99 

1935— Fall Offering 2,583.90 

Interest to December 31, 1935 29.80 



Total Offering, December 31, 1935 $5,396.98 



REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

The suggestion has come to us that in this, the middle year 
of the triennium, we should take stock; should see where we are; 
and just where we are headed. 

In relation to the United Thank Offering, it is my great priv- 
ilege to report to you that here in the Diocese of North Carolina 
we are headed Forward. The constant effort of my predecessor, 
Mrs. Simms, to stem the receeding tide of our offering had a 
gratifying result in 1935. It was she who led us out of the wil- 
derness and set our feet upon an onward path. 

The total amount credited to us in the first year of the trien- 
nium, 1935 is $5,396.98— $522.37 more than in 1934. 

We are climbing slowly, but steadily in our giving. I am pray- 
ing that we are growing more surely and steadily in our interest 
and devotion to those faithful souls who are carrying His ban- 
ners to the ends of the world. 

Past figures show that the middle year of the triennium is 
the lean one. I urge you to see to it that such does not happen 
here in our diocese. The figures I have of the Spring collection 
are very hopeful. 

The contacts I have made through correspondence with branch 
custodians have been a real joy and inspiration to me, and with 
such co-operation and joyful service, our efforts will surely be 
crowned with success and the United Thank Offering will once 
more be placed in its proper place in our lives. 

META F. .HUTCHISON, 
United Thank Offering Custodian.

40 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF AUDITORS 
March 25, 1936 

Miss Emma J. Hall, President, 
Women's Auxiliary, 
Diocese of North Carolina, 
827 North Tryon Street, 
Charlotte, North Carolina, 

Dear Madam: 

As requested I have made an examination of the Treasurer's 
Books for the twelve months period ended December 31, 1935, 
and attach hereto my Report Consisting of Two Exhibits and Two 
supporting Schedules. 

The scope of the examination consisted of tracing all Receipts 
during the year into the Bank and determining that all listed dis- 
bursements were supported by cancelled checks. 

On Exhibit "A" I have shown a summary of Cash Receipts 
and Disbursements for the year. 

On Exhibit "B" I have shown by Funds Balances on Hand 
at December 31, 1934, receipts and disbursements during the year 
and the Balance in each fund at December 31, 1935, together with 
transfers between funds. 

Schedule "1" shows reconciliation of the Balance as shown 
by the Bank with the Balance as shown by your Treasurer. 

Schedule "2" shows source of all Funds received during the 
year. 

This statement is intended to include all receipts for the 
year 1935 even though part of the money was not received by 
your Treasurer until 1936. Items listed as "Deposits in Transit" 
on Schedule "1," represent moneys received during 1936 on 1935 
pledges. 

Respectfully submitted, 

THOS. P. ZUM BRUNNEN, SR., 

Certified Public Accountant. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 



DUTIES OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 

1 — Know the work of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

2 — As the personal representative of the Diocesan President, 
they should keep in close touch with every Branch and report, reg- 
ularly to the President; notifying her of any change of officers, 
and of any emergency in the District. 

3 — Keep an up-to-date list of Branches and officers in the 
district. 

4 — Have a meeting with District officers, at least once a year 
for a round table discussion. 

5 — Send to Branch Presidents information received from Dio- 
cesan President and urge them to answer letters and send in re- 
ports, promptly. 

6 — Arrange for two District meetings a year; spring and 
fall, with programs that would furnish information and create 
interest in work undertaken by the Diocesan Auxiliary and in 
matters of immediate importance to the whole Church. 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The sixteen active branches of the District of Edgecombe re- 
port a most satisfactory year. No outstanding work has been 
noted, but a steady endeavor to carry on the great work entrusted 
to them. 

Both the spring meeting at St. Luke's, Northampton, and the 
fall meetine at Trinity, Scotland Neck, were splendid and well 
attended. Bishop Penick brought us a most inspiring message at 
St. Luke's. Our hearts are always gladdened when it is pos- 
sible for him to be with us. In addition, the branch reports were 
good, showing active interest in each field represented. The Dis- 
trict Officers gave helpful suggestions for the summer. 

At Scotland Neck we were pleased to make a new friend, 
the Reverend J. McD. Dick of Raleigh, who delivered a most force- 
ful address. Miss Rena Clark and Miss Cutler brought beautiful 
messages relating to our field of opportunities. 

Edgecombe feels that Miss Cutler's work has been of inesti- 
mable value to us and it is with keen personal regret that we give 
her up — partly, however, we are happy to know that the whole 
Diocese may have the chance to know her and love her as we do. 

Due somewhat to the very severe winter and the following 
floods and winds, our thoughts have been directed especially to- 
ward Christian Social Service this year. During Lent interest- 
ing study classes have been reported. A good many attended the 
Educational Institute held in Raleigh conducted by Dr. Sherman. 
As a tangible result of this study, several branches have sent 
contributions of money to the Bishop of Mexico to help in a small 
way, to broaden the friendly road to "That other America." 

In planning for the coming year, our hearts with one accord 
turn to our own in Alaska. May God help us to strive in every 
way possible to show those faithful workers that we will not fail 
them. 

MRS. E. W. LEWIS, 
Chairman, District of Edgecombe. 



42 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The fall meeting: of the District of Granville was held at St. 
Alban's Church, Littleton. The attendance was good and much 
interest was shown in the encouraging: reports and the plans of 
the district secretaries. 

Rev. James McDowell Dick of Raleigh gave an inspiring ad- 
dress on the Forward Movement and Mrs. FT. G. Cooper gave a 
report on Kanuga. 

More women are being enlisted for service and actively inter- 
estecljn the work of the Auxiliary. Perhaps most progress is be- 
ing shown in the development of the Sunday schools and the in- 
creased interest in the Mission Study Classes. 



MRS. A. W. GRAHAM, JR. 

Chairman, District of Granville. 



DISTRICT OF WAKE 

The District of Wake had a year of healthy growth and ac- 
tivity in all branches of our work. The United Thank Offering 
has steadily increased, our Social Service Department reports 
work well done, and as a result of Dr. Sherman's most helpful 
Institute our Lenten Study Classes were exceptionally well con- 
ducted and attended. 

As we look forward to the coming year, we hope to deepen 
and develop the more spiritual side of our work, inspired by the 
Forward Movement to a more careful day by day reading of 
God's Word, and the help that will come to us through united 
daily prayers. 

As an objective for the coming year we hope to come into 
closer contact with many of our rural people, increasing their 
interest in Church and Auxiliary and either bringing them to our 
meetings when possible, or forming neighborhood groups. 

FREDA T. WEBB, 
Chairman, District of Wake. 



DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

Looking forward, in my third year as Chairman of the Dis- 
trict of Orange, I see great possibilities for the advancement of 
Christ's Kingdom. Ten branches, Auxiliary conscious, can really 
be a powerful force for good in the Diocese and I bespeak for 
the district a glorious goal preceded by hard work and Christian 
service. 

If the motto, "To Know Each Other Better," is followed up 
by the determination to learn, to give, to live, the branches will 
grow stronger and more effectively spread the gospel of Jesus. 

The zone idea which is growing in favor in the District of 
Orange, brings information and inspiration to the smaller groups. 
Time is given at these meetings to inform ourselves in the various 
phases of Auxiliary work. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 43 



Building; on the solid foundation of Christian Socal Service, 
the United Thank Offering, better educational programs and 
more spiritual life our structure for the coming 1 year will rear its 
Christian head above the masses and really be an example of 
Creative Christianity. 
April 21st, 1936. 

SAZA PECK WILSON, 
Chairman, District of Orange. 



DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

My first move as District Chairman was to call a Pre-Len- 
ten, Regional Conference of all District and Branch officers of 
the District in an effort to increase, among the leaders of our 
District, the effectiveness of extending the work of the Forward 
Movement, endeavoring through them to reach every individual 
thus creating throughout the district a Forward Movement con- 
sciousness. 

The use of the Forward Movement booklets was stressed. For 
this conference, I had carefully prepared a heart searching ques- 
tionnaire divided into five topics for use during Lent for individ- 
ual self-examination 2 Cor. 13:5. Each President was given a 
copy of this with appropriate scripture selections for each topic ; 
to create intensive Bible study (Jno. 5:39) and eliminate Spirit- 
ual Illiteracy which threatens our church and home. Matt. 22:29. 
Lu. 24:32. 

This has already resulted in a request from the Bettie Mar- 
tin Chapter in Leaksville for a Bible class each week which is 
being greatly blessed and through it the girls are assisting me in 
the Christian Social Service work in the County Institutions, thus 
getting the wonderful inspiration of practical experience. 

The Magnificent commission and privilege accorded Mary 
Magdalene that first Easter A. M. "Go Tell" is ours today and 
only through Bible study will our women awaken to their wonder- 
ful possibilities. How can one stand silent and neutral with such 
a specific command? Rev. 3:16. 

The replies from the different branches as to results of Ques- 
tionnaire will be used as a basis for determining our greatest 
need in the district. 

Work among our Young People will be stressed, this is a 
challenging call 1 Tim. 4:12, Ec. 12:1 — Best method Prayer, Pre- 
cept, Practice. Let us "Go Forward" with our youth. A section 
for young peoples work has been appointed in every branch in 
the district of Guilford. 

Keeping informed through Church Periodicals will be em- 
phasized, increased knowledge stimulates giving and praying. 

Another means of forwarding the Church's influence through- 
out Rockingham County is through my association with the In- 
ter-denominational Sunday School Association. On Good Friday 
I held a Three Hour service at a Baptist Church in the County 
with hearty co-operation Jno. 17:22, from all denominations. On 
Sunday, May 31st, at our S. S. Convention a young man, Charles

Re-establishing the Family Altar in every church home will 
be stressed throughout the year, in connection with the study of 
the Nine Point Outline of Religion in the Home.

DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

Someone has said that "the world needs not so much to be 
informed as to be reminded." Believing that we all know more 
than we put into practice, about our Church work we, in the 
district of Forsyth-Rowan, expect to try to keep reminders before 
us, especially at our meetings. We plan to have, in rotation, the 
Diocesan Secretaries of each department come to our meetings so 
that we will remember each branch of the work. We began with 
the United Thank Offering Custodian, followed by the Education- 
al Secretary. Plan to have next our Secretary, for Christian So- 
cial Service together with the Secretary for Young People's work. 
In the fall we hope to have Supply Secretary and one of the Com- 
mittee Chairmen. 

We have had a good year, with two interesting meetings, both 
blessed by the presence of our beloved president. It is my great 
privilege to again report a new branch — the "Fanny Hunt 
Branch," Grace Church, Lexington. 

Our district is well represented among diocesan officers, hav- 
ing given the United Thank Offering Custodian, the Treasurer, 
and a representative on Executive Council. This is an inspira- 
tion to us all, and sets a high standard to maintain. Our very 
close contact with our Prayer Partner and with other mission- 
aries who have gone out from our district, adds zest to the mis- 
sionary spirit and insures continued interest in their fields. 

Our hope is, that by earnest effort to secure workers in all 
fields, we may be known as a recruiting district, coveting not hon- 
or; but counting it a great privilege to give of our best to the 
extension of His Kingdom. "0 Lord, revive our District begin- 



ning with the Chairman." 



MRS. W. S. HOLMES, 

Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

To become more Auxiliary minded and to enlarge our field 
of service has been the aim of the District of Mecklenburg. Added 
impetus has necessarily been given to each phase of Auxiliary 
work as this district has been the home of our Diocesan President, 
Miss Emma Hall, for the past three years. Every department 
shows vigorous interest and healthy growth, particularly those 
of Christian Social Service, Religious Education and the United 
Thank Offering. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 45 



We considered it both a privilege and a joy to have the An- 
nual Meeting in our District, and it was agreed to let it suffice 
for the Spring Meeting. It was especially fitting that it was 
held in St. Peter's Church, Charlotte, the home parish of our be- 
loved President. 

The Fall Meeting was held in St. Mark's Church, Mecklen- 
burg County, and was well attended. Two new officers were 
elected: Mrs. A. F. Dichtenmueller, Prayer Partner Correspond- 
ent and Mrs. C. L. Rowe, Secretary of Young People's Work. The 
District Secretaries made full and comprehensive reports of the 
work in their respective departments. Many activities were re- 
ported, showing that a full Auxiliary program had been carried 
out, in addition to answering numerous other worthwhile needs. 
Rev. John Long Jackson of St. Martin's Church, Charlotte, made 
an illuminating talk on Religious Education, stressing the four 
missionary projects of our Diocese. The Rev. David T. Eaton of 
Burlington spoke interestingly on the Forward Movement. Miss 
Hall, Diocesan President, brought to us a stirring plea for the 
restoration of our work in Alaska. Inspired by her deep interest 
and grave concern several branches made individual pledges, and 
it was voted to give the District offering for the use of the work 
at Anvik. 

Outstanding work is being done in the District along the lines 
of Religious Education and it is playing a vital part in helping 
to restore the missionary work of the Church. "Forward Be Our 
Watchword" has taken on a more significant meaning, and we 
are more alive to the needs of the church today than ever before. 

Some of the branches have done unusual work in the field of 
Christian Social Service: St. Peter's and St. Martin's, Charlotte 
and All Saint's Church, Concord. 

Under the able leadership of Miss Maude Cutler, Diocesan Sec- 
retary of Young People's Work, the District is placing special 
emphasis on enlisting and interesting the young people in the 
work of the Church. Miss Cutler has visited the District twice 
and already her work is bearing fruit. 

May we hope that the rekindled spark of interest and vision, 
so vitally alive in us today, may remain a glowing thing and that 
the work of the Woman's Auxiliary will never again be allowed 
to suffer. 

CORINNE CHILDERS BALLARD, 

District Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

During the past year all phases of the work in the branches 
of the Woman's Auxiliary of the District of Richmond have been 
most encouraging. 

Two meetings have been held, one in the spring at Calvary 
Church, Wadesboro, when our beloved President, Miss Emma Hall, 
who has never failed to be with us, presented a most heart rend- 
ing appeal for the carrying on of Miss Olive Meacham's work in 
Liberia. As a result of this meeting, a very nice contribution was 
sent to Miss Meacham to help defray the expenses of opening the 
Julia C. Emery School at Bromley, Liberia. 



46 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



There was a very splendid meeting in the fall in All Saints' 
Church, Hamlet, and an enthusiastic response to the plea for aid, 
to send a nurse to Anvik, Alaska. 

Again our President, Miss Hall, was present to help and en- 
courage us. 

The Reverend Mr. Eaton and Miss Cutler were our other 
speakers, and as a result of their talks, much good has been ac- 
complished this past winter. 

Miss Cutler's work with the young people has been very fine 
and we are hoping under her inspiration, to make the work among 
the young people something outstanding in our District. 

It was gratifying to see how well the District was represented 
at Dr. Sherman's Educational Institute, held in Charlotte in Jan- 
uary, and note the interest that has been shown in the study of 
"That Other America." 

Our United Thank Offering also shows an increase this 
spring. 

We are few in numbers, but our members are very much 
alive and interested in the work of the whole Church, so we are 
looking forward to co-operating in every way, to carry out the 
plans of the different departments of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

HELOISE SMITH, 
Chairman, Richmond District. 



NEGRO DISTRICT 

Since our last Annual Meeting, with the confidence asked 
for placed in us, we have with renewed courage tried to do our 
little best that you might not be disappointed. True, we have 
not as yet had full co-operation from all our sixteen branches, 
but this has not disheartened us, for prayer can and will bring 
this about. Pray we must, remembering our Lord never gave 
up. "We need must go through Samaria" be our watchword, 
for those branches working with us, it has been good to have 
done so. There is so much to be done, such a wide beautiful op- 
portunity to bring to Him, something, even a gift of the smallest 
nature, that at His feet we may not fall empty handed. So much 
to get through to others that our hearts become over anxious that 
we may not fail Him when to us as well as others He gave that 
blessed command "Go." 

Last year I promised you that ere this meeting we would at 
least put out to sea. We have tried, though our sailing has been 
but slow, due to the fact as before stated, all were not yet on 
board, causing our sails to but half open. You must at least 
know we were in the stream. Keep trusting in and praying for 
us, through Faith we shall make harbor. 

ESSIE LEE EDWARDS, 
Chairman of Negro District.

COMMITTEE REPORTS 

REPORT OF RECRUITING SECRETARY 

When I was asked to fill Mrs. Spruill's unexpired term, as 
Recruiting Secretary for the Diocese of North Carolina, I found I 
could not improve on the program already outlined by Mrs. 
Spruill, so I adopted many of her ideas and sent them in the form 
of a bulletin to each District Recruiting 1 Secretary. I also wrote 
a personal letter to them, asking their co-operation in contacting 
the branches and later, I sent a questionnaire hoping to get a con- 
crete report from each branch secretary. 

Out of the eight districts I have had five splendid reports: 
1. Forsyth-Rowan 2. Edgecombe 4. Granville 

3. Guilford 5. Wake 

They show real achievement and a better understanding of 
the Recruiting program. Many of the branches say that the 
questionnaire has definitely outlined the duties of a Recruiting 
Secretary and that they will use it as a guide for their work next 
year. 

One District Secretary wrote me that "This phase of Recruit- 
ing, getting more people interested in His work, for the extension 
of 'His Kingdom, in this world must be truly pleasing to Him, and 
with this thought in mind I have gotten increased pleasure in this 
work." 

I wish I could give you in full the reports of the five men- 
tioned Districts, especially the one from Mrs. Lynn Bernhardt, 
Secretary Forsyth-Rowan. Mrs. Bernhardt used the question- 
naires received from her branches, which was nearly one hundred 
per cent and in an interesting manner grouped the high lights 
from each branch in a concise report. May I quote just a few 
of those high lights? 

"A young girl has offered herself for the mission field, and is 
waiting, hoping to be called." 

"We furnished books for a Theological student and were 
instrumental in placing a young man at Catawba College, who 
it is hoped will study for the ministry." 

"Every member personally contacted and invited to join the 
Auxiliary, with special emphasis on the younger women, who 
came in a body and joined." 

"A wholesale organization move to recruit children for the 
church school with gratifying results." 

Guilford Secretary reports that they are responsible for one 
recruit for the mission field and partly responsible for another, 
and much interest manifested in camps and conferences. One 
of her branches reports recruits for the choir, which suggests 
another duty for Recruiting Secretaries. 

Edgecombe Secretary reports one branch working up an in- 
terest in the church paper, which suggests still another duty for 
Recruiting Secretaries. 

Many of the branches reported soap wrappers for Thompson 
Orphanage. Dare I suggest that soap wrappers be still another 
duty for Recruiters? 

This report covers about fifty per cent of our branches but 
I am gratified over the work accomplished. I am sure the other 



48 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



districts have not shirked their responsibilities and will let us hear 
from them next time. 

I wish to thank Miss Hall and Mrs. Zachary for their interest 
and patience while getting this program launched. I could not 
have done it at all without their help. 

To the District Recruiting Secretaries, who really did the 
work, I pledge my support, and ask their continued co-operation. 

CECILE H. WHITE, 
(Mrs. Ben) 

Diocesan Recruiting Secretary. 
April 20, 1936.

REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

It is gratifying to note the increasing interest the districts 
have taken in their prayer partners, and to realize from letters 
just how much this interest and spiritual help means to our mis- 
sionaries. 

The death of Mrs. Coffin is a great loss. We will miss her 
splendid work. The District of Mecklenburg surrounded her with 
gifts and tokens of loving sympathy in her illness, which was a 
source of great pleasure to her during her suffering. Her sister, 
Mrs. Hart, has taken over her work and is our Prayer Partner 
now. 

The District of Orange has again remembered Miss Whit- 
combe with seventy shirts for her native boys at Sagada. Miss 
Anna Groff is now Prayer Partner for the District of Guilford. 
Let us continue our prayers for our Prayer Partners. 

CLAUDIA J. ERWIN POWE, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF WORK AMONG THE ISOLATED 

Thirteen branches report 58 isolated persons reached and 
two families, one of which contains five children ... a total then 
of 65 or more persons. 

With this as a measuring yard there would seem to be 400 
members of this Church in the diocese without any contacts with 
the Church. Another fact to be noted is that, with one excep- 
tion, the isolated persons found so far have been found by small, 
rural branches. The one exception is one of the largest branches 
in one of the most thickly settled parts of the Diocese. This 
branch in one item of its excellent report says that 15 Easter cards 
were sent to isolated people asking them to attend the Easter 
service in the parish Church. These facts would indicate that 
isolated persons are within reach of both large and small branches 
and in the most thickly and the most sparsely settled parts of our 
Diocese. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 49 



For two years your Chairman of this work has hesitated to 
ask for the appointment of a special parish officer in every 
branch to undertake this task, because of the feeling we all have 
against overly organizing our work. It seems necessary, how- 
ever, if we are really to do this task both of finding and of serv- 
ing these people to ask for this offer in every parish. And in ad- 
dition to ask that the Educational Secretary, Social Service Sec- 
retary, and United Offering Secretary serve with the parish Iso- 
lated Secretary on a committee in order to give these people 
Church contacts after they are found. For example, the Social 
Service Secretary might assume the task of supplying ways for 
bringing people who have no other means of transportation to 
Church on certain occasions. Hillsboro for example has two mem- 
bers who go six miles whenever it is possible and bring to Church 
and Sunday School a mother, her five children and two nieces. 
The Educational Secretary would see that Church literature is 
furnished and that the names of all children who cannot attend 
Sunday School regularly at least once a month are furnished Miss 
Cutler for the Correspondence Course for the Isolated which the 
Department of Religious Education of the Diocese will be ready 
to offer in the fall. The United Offering Custodian would be 
able to give many a woman, who will perhaps never be able to do 
anything else, the privilege of giving and praying for missions 
through the medium of the blue box. 

The president of one of the largest branches asks for a sug- 
gestion of "some practical way in which this work could be 
started." Last year it was suggested that the most complete mail- 
ing list available covering the county in which the branch is 
located be secured and a return postal be sent to every person on 
the list asking about church affiliation. This, however, did not 
seem practical because of the expense. The suggestion is now 
made that this task might be undertaken jointly by all the wom- 
en's missionary organizations in the community. This would be 
another way of working with other Christian women and it would 
cut the expense and work down one-fourth or more. This seems 
the only thorough-going way of finding our people. If any branch 
can think out any other way of accomplishing our purpose, which 
is to find every one which our Church should be ministering to 
and making of them witnesses wherever they may be the plan 
will be most gratefully received and passed on to every branch. 

May we the year that is ahead do a real task. First let us 
think our ways to approach this problem, and then act decisively. 
We are probably at work for a group of our Church members 
larger than any congregation in the Diocese of North Carolina. 

CLAUDIA HUNTER, 
Chairman Work With the Isolated. 



REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF INTER-RACIAL WORK 

The third year since the organization of the Negro Branches 
of the Woman's Auxiliary has passed and with it a commendable 
record of hard work and sometimes sacrifice. 

There are now seventeen Branches in this Diocese, well organ- 
ized and active. Each Branch has been visited at least once dur- 



50 FIFTY-FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT 



ing the three years to assist the officers and members in their 
efforts. The attendance at these meetings has been excellent and 
the interest keen, as is shown in the President's report. At these 
meetings the co-operation of the Rectors of these churches and 
their attendance has been indeed helpful. Attendance, too, and 
the interest shown by Rectors and members of nearby churches 
has proven an inspiration.

Your chairman last year reported 15 branches of the Diocesan 
Auxiliary actively engaged in the work of the Church Periodical 
Club. While there has been an increase since then, it is so slight 
in comparison to the number of branches in the diocese that one 
cannot point with pride to the gain made. .However, we are glad 
to report that the work of the C. P. C. in our diocese compares 
favorably with what is accomplished in other dioceses. 

The demand for magazines and books at C. C. Camps and 
penal institutions is greater than it was a few years ago. In addi- 
tion to this phase of the work, donors of current periodicals and 
Church papers to clergymen are secured; Bibles, Prayer Books and 
hymnals, tracts, Christmas and Easter cards were sent to all 
parts of the world; and since 1922, a Library Fund to provide 
missionary workers with suitable books has been provided. 

Your chairman recommends that every parish C. P. C. libra- 
rian secure information regarding the activities of this organiza- 
tion and present its needs at Auxiliary meetings, and also request 
Rectors on the second Sunday in May to summarize briefly what 
has been accomplished by your Diocesan C. P. C, and have an 
offering to further the work. 

With the growing demand for literature and Bibles, we need 
assistance from branches that are not actively engaged in this 
work, and assure them that by so doing they will experience the 
spirit of sharing that brings joy to "those who give and take."

FOREWORD 



How can I find out about the Auxiliary program for 
my Parish? How can I find out what has already been 
done before I took the office of Parish president? Why do 
we raise that much money for a certain objective? To 
whom must I write about the work in that department? 
What connection does my branch have with the Diocese, 
the Province or the General Church? What must I do for 
a program? Etc. 

These questions and similar ones used to be heard 
constantly from women of the Auxiliary as they began to 
take real interest in the work. Many Dioceses found the 
answers by publishing their Annual Reports in such form 
that the women could benefit by them. Today they are in- 
dispensable to hundreds of women and yet — MANY DO 
NOT USE THEM AS THEY SHOULD! 

Every officer ought to have one and every Parish 
Branch ought to be familiar with its contents, using them 
not only as records but as a basis for programs and for 
reference. I urge you to make every possible use of your 
splendid Annual. Every page is important or it would not 
have been included. I am certain if you do this that you 
will understand the program of the Church better and that 
your work will mean more to you. One fine thing about the 
Woman's Auxiliary is that the more you understand the 
ideals, the purposes and the plans, the more you real- 
ize that it can become a satisfying means of accomplish- 
ment in your desire to do your part in the work of our 
beloved Church. 

Mrs. H. J. MacMillan, Janie Williams MacMillan, 

President of Woman's Auxiliary in the Province of Sewanee.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



Resolution adopted at the Triennial Meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary, 1934, Atlantic City, N. J. 

CLOSER RELATIONS BETWEEN HOME DIOCESE AND 
MISSIONARIES 

Whereas, It has been found that there is a wide difference in 
the methods of maintaining a personal touch with the missionaries 
who have gone out from the several dioceses, and 

Whereas, Some missionaries seem to receive much more per- 
sonal attention than others, 

Be it Resolved: That this Triennial Meeting assembled rec- 
ommend to the diocesan officers of the Woman's Auxiliary that the 
name of each missionary who has gone out from the diocese, to- 
gether with that of her home parish and her address in the mis- 
sionary district where she is serving, with her occupation and 
United Thank Offering designation, if that bs the case, be printed 
in the Annual Report, or given suitable publicity in order that the 
women of the diocese may establish friendly relations with her, and 

Be it Further Resolved: That it is recommended to these same 
officers that the dates of furlough and vacation of such mission- 
aries be secured through definite correspondence with them, in 
order that plans may be made to make their return to their home 
diocese a pleasant and profitable holiday. If special training is 
desired, we recommend that information and advice be secured 
from the Church Missions House in order that they may be guided 
without loss of time as to the best ways of advancing in their pro- 
fession or work.

"And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all 
men unto me." 

NOON DAY PRAYER USED AT PROVINCIAL MEETING 

Blessed Saviour who at this hour didst hang upon the cross, be 
very near and real to us throughout this Synod. 

Grant that all the work undertaken by the women of this Prov- 
ince may be according to Thy divine plan and purpose. 

We come to Thee praying that from the conference and meet- 
ings, our horizons may be widened, that we may find a new vision 
and feel a broader and deeper sympathy and understanding for 
all men everywhere. 

And, Oh Father, we pray Thee to so stir up our lazy wills and 
imaginations until we DARE to have the courage to stand for the 
right, until justice and truth, peace and brotherhood shall prevail 
among all Nations and Peoples. 

Dispel from our minds all doubt and gloom, make our religion 
one of joy and brightness, teach us to throw open wide the windows 
of our souls in order to look away from ourselves and to see 
clearer the need of the world. 

Help us through all our activities to keep ever before us Thy 
Purpose. 

Make us realize that only as each individual one of us is will- 
ing to surrender our will and to sincerely and honestly desire Thy 
will to be done, are we fitted to carry out Thy plan of winning 
others to Thee. 

Bless our Missionaries wherever they may be and make us feel 
our responsibility to them. 

But whether we be Missionaries at home or abroad, grant that 
we may know that the only hope of establishing God's kingdom 
and bringing peace on earth, is that we who serve under His banner 
may be transf ormed by that all-consuming Love of Jesus Christ, so 
that whatever we do, wherever we are, our lives will radiate and 
show forth that love in Christian fellowship, in good will and in 
brotherly love, until all with whom we come in contact, may be able 
to say 'Surely these women have been with Jesus': Amen. 



10 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 



Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the Cross, 
stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind may 
look unto Thee, and be saved; through Thy Merits and mercies, 
Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy Ghost, ever 
One God, world without end. Amen. 

Auxiliary Prayer 

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so thank- 
ful for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son that we may 
pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make Him 
known to all Nations as their God and Saviour. We ask this for 
His dear sake. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some 
young man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement 
of Thy Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, 
with such love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the 
uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all 
things which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

A Prayer for the Diocese 

O God, whose love reacheth unto the ends of the world, Bless, 
we pray Thee, this Diocese; and grant that all who share its bene- 
fits may show forth Thy glory by deeds and by gifts for the 
spread of Thy Kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons 
of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties com- 
mitted to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace 
and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten 
their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless 
all who have contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray 
Thee, a never-failing succession of benefactors whose names may 
be perpetuated through all generations as a blessed memory, and 
their good deeds be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, 
that it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, 
we beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, especially 
in this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, 
the sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens 
with our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. 
Amen. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 11 



Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep. Whose 
flocks are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the 
hope of a better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep in 
scattered places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; Who 
art with the Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world 
without end. Amen. 

For Religious Education 

O God, who hast sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, 
the Truth and the Life, Grant that we, looking unto Him may set 
forward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Social Service 

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, 
making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest, 
who dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and 
joy of the citizens of that holy city. Amen. 

The Forward Movement 

We pray Thee, God, for Thy Blessing upon the Forward 
Movement of Thy Church. Use it, we beseech Thee, to open our 
eyes to the needs of men for the Gospel of Christ, and to the 
opportunities that lie before the Church to extend His Kingdom. 
Stir up, O Lord, the wills of all Thy people to shai'e in this work 
with gladness of heart and self-sacrificing spirit. Let not our 
purpose slack, but let the kingdoms of this world become the King- 
dom of our God and of His Christ. Amen. 



For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can en- 
able us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dig- 
nity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our 
leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service ; to those 
so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, 
and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of 
every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers and 
workers in Thy service: bless we pray Thee Thy servant, .... 
and prosper her in the work to which Thou has called her. Grant 
her sufficient wisdom for every task, Thy gracious help in time of 
trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and the power to 
accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name and for Thy 
glory through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." Amen. 



12 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 



Thanksgiving 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee humble 
thanks for all the great things Thou has done and are doing for 
the children of men; for the opening of heathen lands to the light 
of Thy truth; for making paths unto the deep waters and high- 
ways in the desert; for knitting nation to nation in the bond of 
fellowship, and for the planting of Thy Church in all the earth. O 
merciful Father, in whom the whole family is named, fill full our 
hearts with grateful love for this Thy goodness, granting grace 
henceforth to serve Thee better and more perfectly to know Thee; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Re-dedication 

Realizing that only through personal dedication to Jesus 
Christ, our Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human en- 
deavors, we re-dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord Jesus 
Christ, to making the strength of our deeds the measure of our 
Faith; to a sincere and simple effort in our daily living to follow 
with humility the example of our Saviour.

The Fifty-fifth Annual Meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary to the National Council of the Diocese of 
North Carolina convened Tuesday morning, April 6, at 
eleven o'clock in Christ Church, Raleigh. The president, 
Mrs. William J. Gordon, was in the chair. Following 
the opening hymn, the Rev. J. A. Wright, rector of 
Christ Church, led the devotional service, after which 
he welcomed the Convention to the parish. 

The welcome from the Hostess branch was made

delivered her annual address. She said a review of the 
year showed much reason for encouragement but also 
called attention to certain needs. She took as the theme 
of her message the keynote of the Convention — "Work- 
ers Together with Him," and as the work is God's, to 
give and serve acceptably, it must be done His way. 

In the absence of Miss Corinna Gant, Vice-Presi- 
dent and Supply Department Secretary, the Secretary 
read her report. The reports of the other Diocesan Offi- 
cers were made, and accepted, to be printed in the Year

expressed appreciation for the help given by the Church 
Periodical Club and the Supply Department. 

Motions were made and carried that messages be 
sent Mrs. Dorian Blair and Mrs. F. S. Spruill, regretting

thusiastic way about the plans for the summer camps

velopment — physically, socially, and spiritually.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 23 

EVENING SERVICE— APRIL 6TH 

The evening service was held in Christ Church at 
eight o'clock. The address was given by Miss Margaret 
Marston, National Secretary of Religious Education, who 
gave impressions and experiences which she brought 
back from a recent trip to the Missions in the Orient. 
She brought messages of greeting from the women of 
the church in China and Japan, emphasizing the fact 
that there is but one Universal Church. In closing, she 
summarized the call of the Orient to the church in 
America in three ways — call to understanding, call to 
co-operation, and call to fellowship. To answer these 
calls, there must be a renewed faith in the power of God 
to work out His purpose in this world. 

WEDNESDAY— APRIL 7TH 

At 7 :30 o'clock, Wednesday morning, a Corporate 
Communion was celebrated, Bishop Penick being the 
celebrant, assisted by Rev. J. A. Wright. The United

ration of those who have passed into the larger life, in 
the past year. 

BUSINESS SESSION 

The meeting convened at 9 :45, Wednesday morning, 
with devotions led by Rev. J. M. Dick.

Revision of the Constitution, presented the revised Con- 
stitution and By-Laws. Each article was presented and 
a motion made and duly carried that one amendment 
be made. The Constitution and By-Laws, as amended, 
were duly adopted. 

Bishop Penick expressed his appreciation for the 
cape and biretta, presented by the Auxiliary. He based 
his message to the Convention on the 20th Chapter of the 
Gospel of St. John. He stated that genuine discipleship 
must be enthusiastic and the great need in the Auxiliary 
is the warmth, which comes from reality, reality coming 
from prayer. He urged the Auxiliary to be more inter- 
ested in our Young People's program, stressing the fact 
that this is a major opportunity, and that there is a great 
need for leadership from the adults, which the young 
people are not receiving. 



24 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 

The Chairmen of the Districts were presented and

be rescinded.

REPORT OF FINDINGS COMMITTEE 

1. That our President, Mrs. Gordon, brought us encouraging 
news of an increase in the membership, interest and gifts of the 
Auxiliary and showed us challenging possibilities for still further 
growth and for making the spirit of sacrifice the measure of our 
giving. 

2. That there is need for continual study and religious edu- 
cation and that everyone should be familiar with the Year Book. 

3. That Mrs. Burke's graphic account of the work at Fort 
Yukon radiated the spirit of joyful service and made us more 
deeply grateful than ever for the outstanding work of her and 
her husband. 



26 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 



4. That we should give careful consideration to the methods 
of raising Auxiliary funds in order that we should do nothing 
to invite criticism or keep anyone out of the Auxiliary. 

5. That Mrs. MacMillan called us to think of the church in 
wider terms than that of our own parish or diocese and to remem- 
ber that our first duty is to share Christ. 

6. That we should have a justifiable pride in our schools, 
camps and conferences and that it is to our great advantage to 
patronize them. 

7. That Miss Marston brought us good news of excellent 
work by native clergy in the Far East, that she made us feel 
very deeply the fellowship of the Christian family around the 
world and that we are convinced of the truth of the Japanese 
student's statement as quoted by her: "The only way out of the 
present world turmoil is in the footsteps of Jesus Christ." 

8. That we must strengthen our auxiliary work by encour- 
aging our parish leaders to get further training, especially by at- 
tending summer conferences. 

9. That the play given at St. Mary's was a striking illus- 
tration of an unusually good way to create interest in the United 
Thank Offering, and that we should make every effort in the few 
remaining months of this triennium to secure the participation of 
every church woman in this offering. 

10. That the great festival to be held at the Thompson 
Orphanage is to be a most inspiring occasion and that everyone 
possible should avail themselves of this opportunity to see the 
splendid work there. 

11. That from the Gospel for Easter Day, Bishop Penick 
held up for us several searching tests by which we distinguish 
between nominal and genuine discipleship. That he put his finger 
on the greatest need as well as the greatest opportunity in our 
auxiliary work when he urged us to investigate our young people's 
work and to give them the right example and wise guidance. 

12. That Mi's. Edwards brought us an illuminating message 
from the Negro District. 

13. That a spirit of unusual enthusiasm and spirituality has 
pervaded this entire meeting which fact we believe indicative of 
the growing interest of individuals in the Master's business, due 
largely to the influence of the Forward Movement. 

The budget of $6,600 for 1938 was presented by the 
Treasurer and accepted by the Convention. 

The minutes of the meeting were read and ap- 
proved, and the new officers installed. Bishop Penick 
pronounced the benediction and the fifty-fifth Annual 
Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of 
North Carolina was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Anne S. Easley, 
Secretary 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 27 



The Bishop's Charge 



This Fifty-fifth Annual Report of the Woman's 
Auxiliary is a simple, factual record of a year's work 
well done. It glances backward only long enough to 
recite a remarkable achievement. As a Handbook, it is 
almost indispensable for purposes of reference and 
study. Its chief value, however, is not its history so much 
as its vision of work that remains to be done. Like 
St. Paul, the Auxiliary is forever "pressing forward" 
towards new marks of attainment for Christ. This eager- 
ness of spirit has prompted the Auxiliary to place a fresh 
valuation upon the possibilities of youth in our Church. 
If any one objective for the near future may be singled 
out for special, urgent emphasis, I believe it would be 
the moral and spiritual needs of our young people. 
Youth's spontaneity is a glorious gift, but it seldom be- 
comes effective for the Church except under the wise and 
sympathetic direction of its elders. This, I would say, 
is at present the most important phase of the Auxiliary's 
many-sided program. I anticipate for the women of this 
Diocese, who are so dead-in-earnest about their disciple- 
ship, the same degree of success in this endeavor that 
has marked their other efforts, first to acquire, and then 
to share, "the unsearchable riches of Christ." 

Edwin A. Penick, 
Bishop of North Carolina. 



28 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 

THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS TO THE CONVENTION 

OF 1937 

Bishop Penick, Gentlemen of the Clergy, Women of the 

Auxiliary : 

I, too, am happy to greet you here this morning. We 
are gathered together to give an account of our steward- 
ship for the past year, and to plan to go forward into a 
new year. I pray that this may not be merely another 
meeting, because it is the time and the custom for dele- 
gates to assemble, but that it may be an occasion when 
the Holy Spirit is present in such reality and power that 
we may return to our home with a deepened knowledge 
of God's will for us as disciples, and with an increased 
assurance that whatever He is calling us to be, and to 
do, is possible, but possible only as we work together 
with Him. 

A review of the past year gives reason for encour- 
agement. The branch reports show, on the whole, an in- 
crease in membership, in interest and in gifts. In re- 
ferring to the membership, I should like to call your at- 
tention to the fact that though there are 108 branches, 
they are located in only 92 of the 122 parishes and mis- 
sions of the diocese. I suggest that the districts make a 
study of this situation, as it concerns the work of the 
Church within their respective boundaries. Two new 
branches were organized during the year. 

I shall refer only briefly to the general activities of 
the past year as the reports of the diocesan officers and 
special committee chairman will cover these in detail. 
The study for the winter, "Africa," and "The American 
Negro" has been done in an exceptionally fine way. The 
approach has been almost surprisingly sympathetic, and 
the numbers of the programs in the white branches when 
members of the colored race have made valuable con- 
tributions, is a matter of much encouragement. Both 
races realize that we have a problem, a problem which 
can be solved only by a Christian attitude between fel- 
low citizens of the Commonwealth and of the Kingdom 
of God. The increase in the United Thank Offering is 
another reason for thanksgiving. 

In addition to the usual program for the year, the 
Auxiliary had a Quiet Day in the fall, and four confer- 
ences on Personal Religion, in as many places, the first 
week in Lent, in an effort to emphasize the devotional 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 29 

life. However, there were fewer corporate communions 
and intercessory days among the branches and I ask you 
to consider this a serious loss on our part. Most of the 
branches observed the Quiet Day for Prayer, November 
11, and shared in the World Day of Prayer, the first Fri- 
day in Lent. I ask each branch next year to arrange to 
take part in this World Prayer Day. It is a source of in- 
spiration to be a part of the mighty nost offering prayer 
throughout the world, and during the twenty-four hours 
of the day. It is also an opportunity for very real fellow- 
ship among our communions. 

We have been glad to feel that we liave had a very 
real part in the work in Alaska, through the ministry of 
Miss Gayle Wagner at Anvik and Miss Marguerite Bam- 
berger at Nenana. Our own workers in the field have 
been increased by Miss Mary Frances Young, of Hender- 
son, who is stationed at the Mission School for Orphan 
Children at Charlottesville, Va. While a student at the 
Woman's College at Greensboro, Miss Young gained some 
practical experience by assisting in the children's work 
at the Church of the Redeemer. 

My own activities have included attendance at three 
Auxiliary Executive Board meetings, two Diocesan 
Executive Council meetings, three meetings of the Vade 
Mecum Camp Committee, two meetings of the Provincial 
Executive Board and the Provincial meeting in New 
Orleans, the Quiet Day at Burlington and Auxiliary Day 
at Kanuga; ten District meetings and ten Branch meet- 
ings, at all of which I took some part on the program. I 
have held one Educational Institute, and four confer- 
ences on Personal Religion, and I taught the Auxiliary 
Course at the St. Augustine's Summer Conference. Out- 
side the diocese, I taught a course at Kanuga Adult 
Conference, and held a six-hour Auxiliary Institute in 
Christ Church, Greenville, S. C, addressed the Auxiliary 
of the Church of the Ephiphany, Danville, Va., and made 
two addresses to Auxiliary groups, gathered at the 
Church of the Redemption, Philadelphia. 

Our thoughts are turning to the Triennial Meeting 
and the General Convention to be held in October. The 
theme will be "The Mission of the Church" — the one 
great life purpose of individuals and of Christian organ- 
izations. I hope we may get our thoughts away from the 
colorful pageantry and even the marvelously inspiring 
personnel gathered for these occasions to the single- 



30 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 

minded consideration of our common task, the King's 
business. That, too, is the one reason for our gathering 
here, today. 

We shall lift up our eyes during these two days and 
look on the fields — on the field of the Province of Sewanee 
with some echoes of the gathering in New Orleans, last 
November; to the snow-swept field of Alaska with its 
heroic consecration and deeply personal association; to 
the larger, colorful, challenging field of the Orient, with 
its unlimited possibilities ; and we expect from our Bishop 
such an appraisal of our work as shall make it more ef- 
fective. Yet it is not our work, but God's work in which 
He is giving us the privilege of serving, workers together 
with the Servant of all. We can have no more significant 
or comprehensive prayer than the response to the "Litany 
of the Disciples' Way," "Help us, Master, to walk in 
Thy way." St. John narrates that on the day following 
the feeding of the 5.000, the multitudes asked Jesus?" 
'What shall we do that we might work the works of 
God?' And Jesus answered and said unto them, 'This is 
the work of God that ye believe on Him whom He hath 
sent'." He says that to us, too. It is not enough that we 
shall be busy doing things; it is important, first of all, 
that our faith in Christ shall be of such personal reality 
and our lives so attuned to His, that His own abundant 
life shall motivate and empower our worship, our gifts 
and our service; not what we do, but what He shall do 
through us, counts. If we are to be "Workers together 
with Him," our methods and our efforts must aspire to 
His high plane; we would not pull Him down to ours. 
I am constrained to ask that we think, in terms of this 
co-partnership, of some of the methods which we use in 
raising Auxiliary funds. To secure a certain amount of 
money is not of first importance; the grace and glory 
of giving lies in the fact that the gift is acceptable to 
God. The three-fold offering of the Wise Men made one 
complete gift; mere gold was not enough, the myrrh of 
sacrifice made the gift precious and brought blessing to 
the giver, for there is a "mystic enrichment in gifts that 
cost;" "and the frankincense breathed glory to God. Not 
the amount of the gold, but the spirit of sacrifice and 
the assurance that this is "to the glory of God," is the 
measure of our gift. Not according to our energy, but 
according to our faith, shall there flow from our inmost 
being, rivers of living water to the thirsty ones around 
us. On these terms, no offering is too insignificant, no 



TH& WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 31 

life too humble, no branch too small to be of immeasur- 
able value and usefulness in God's sight. 

Master, let me walk with Thee, in conscious com- 
panionship, not in my feeble effort, but in the might of 
Thy Spirit, so shall I be a labourer together with Thee. 
Amen. 

Anna Clark Gordon.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 



REPORT OF SUPPLY SECRETARY FOR 1936 

It gives me pleasure to report that the Supply Department 
has functioned very satisfactorily during the year. The coopera- 
tion of the District Chairmen has been greatly appreciated, and 
I also wish to express my gratitude to Mrs. Joseph E. Gant who 
has done so much to help me in this work and is filling my place 
while I am away. 

The conference held by Miss Grace Lindley and Mrs. T. K. 
Wade in Richmond, Va., was very inspiring and helpful. Mrs. Wade 
held a special Supply conference, and it was brought out that 
dresses sent in the Mission boxes were more acceptable when they 
were made of a variety of materials and different designs. For 
this reason I have asked each Branch, when pi-actical, to give the 
material and make one dress for the store room. 

Each year our allotment is enlarged so it is necessary for us 
to increase our efforts in this department in order to fulfill our 
obligations. We have received most appreciative letters acknowl- 
edging the personal and mission boxes we have sent. 

While in the Orient I hope to visit some of our hospitals and 
schools and learn first hand their needs and the value our Supply 
work is to them. 

I regret that I cannot make my report in person. 

May the Holy Spirit guide and direct us in all of our doings, 
blessing our efforts and giving us that peace which passes all 
understanding. 

Corinna H. Gant, 
Vice-President and Supply Secretary.

FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE SECRETARY 

Out of 88 branches in our Diocese 67 sent in repoi'ts of actual 
Christian Social Service. 

Just what do we mean by Christian Social Service — Feeding 
the hungry, caring for the poor, nursing the sick, certainly. I 
have been asked so often what we can do beside just these. Well 
opportunity for service lies on every hand. The stranger within 
our gates needs a friendly hand. The new-made citizen expects 
opportunity and justice, youth needs friendship and leadership. 
Worthy projects that make real our claim of justice and humanity 
challenge us. Service to the underprivileged, the neglected ones, 
the sad and discontented, the poor, the needy, calls us. And as my 
term of office expires and I give you this last report, I would like 
to leave with you this definition of Christian Social Service. 
It is the fulfilling of Christ's second commandment, when He said 
"Love thy neighbor as thyself." And who is our neighbor? Science 
has made us into one neighborhood, surely God should make us 
into one brotherhood. 

It is fitting that we should pause and ask ourselves what we 
individually are doing to make justice and opportunity the birth- 
right of every person? What are we doing to fit citizens to 
shoulder their responsibilities? What are we doing to bring cour- 
age and faith and hope into disappointed lives. Have we clothed 
and fed and served the needy? Have we spoken the word of cheer 
and extended the hand of friendship? 

For three years I have talked to you about the youth in our 
church schools. Here is a great opportunity for our Christian 
Social Service, and I find many auxiliaries devoting time and 
service and love in this field, but there is so much to be done. 
Among the unemployed are according to the United States Com- 
mission of Education five million young persons between the ages 
of sixteen and twenty-five who can find no useful place in society. 
Can we afford to neglect them? Roads are not closed to youth. 
The needs of the world are as great as ever, therefore there is 
work to do, but work that requires character and vision. Our 
young people are the hope and promise of our church. They are 
our leaders of tomorrow. 

As Christian Social Service leaders let us help these boys and 
girls catch the vision. 

Tis springtime, newness of life is all about us, new hopes in 
every breast, new opportunities, new work, new spirit, new 
achievements. 

Ruby Lee Anderson, 
Christian Social Service Sec. 



REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY 

1936 

The report of last year's activities along educational lines 
show an increase in the study of the mission field, especially of the 
books recommended for the classes. And the fine work being ac- 
complished by the Woman's Auxiliary in our diocese has been 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



spurred on, without doubt, by the study of the needs of the church 
on the frontier. 

However, as outgoing Secretary for Religious Education, I 
would beg that, in the coming year we remember that the mission 
study books recommended should by no means constitute our sole 
accomplishment in educational work. By use of the study books, 
we specialize in one field each year, thus being enabled to make a 
more comprehensive study on that particular work. There are 
many phases of the Church's work, which is our work. There 
are many needs, many thrills, many lessons, many inspirations 
awaiting our discovery by properly informing ourselves of the work 
being done, and crying to be done, in parish, diocese, nation and in 
the world. 

Let us read Church papers, attend meetings, local, district 
and diocesan. Let us have an open mind, and approach even the 
reading of the daily papers with the attitude of a real Christian, 
wondering what this or that particular bit of news can mean to 
us in our job of bringing the world to Christ. 

There are many aids offered to us in our educational work 
in the Auxiliary. As mentioned, there are Church papers, meetings 
of various kinds. There are also summer conferences', now in reach 
of most of us. There are planned programs, and fine courses of 
study available, with a wealth of accompanying material. 

We need to know about the work to be successful. The work 
of the Auxiliary is a joy and a privilege. Let us fit ourselves for it. 

Sarah Thomas Watters, 
Secretary For Religious Education. 



REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 1936 

1935 Previously reported $ 5,396.98 

1936 Spring offering $2,801.79 

1936 Fall offering $2,960.77 

1936 Total offering 5,762.56 

1936 Interest 175.97 



$11,335.51 
The outward expression "Thy Kingdom Come" in our daily 
prayer is truly the origin and purpose of the United Thank Offer- 
ing; for this we pray, for this we work. Some one has said that 
the thankful heart makes the hearing ear and the seeing eye. I 
appeal to you now to open both eyes and ears to the needs of the 
.Church, and to consider prayerfully the three hundred faithful 
women who are serving on Her frontiers in the name of the United 
Thank Offering. 

Our offering is growing steadily, yes; but we are far from 
the goal reached in former years. We rank high among the dioceses 
in per capita giving, but the contributors are too few and the 
interest and knowledge too limited. We made a gain of $368.58 
over 1935 and the total offering with interest was $5,938.53. 

Figures are not the only measure by which we count our 
growth. The call for material, leaflets, and facts about the offering 
has increased and indicates a wider interest and knowledge of 
our purpose. 



36 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL- REPORT 



An alert and interested custodian can do much to promote 
activity, and to those faithful district and branch custodians I am 
truly grateful. Their suggestions and cooperation have inspired me 
to better effort. 

We are nearing the end of this triennium, there is much that 
can be done in these closing days. I commend them to you as days 
of opportunity. Opportunity to make the offering at the conven- 
tion in October one of which we can rightfully say, "As God hath 
prospered us." 

As we trace our blessings to that Fount from whom all 
blessings flow may we add this little prayer 

"0\ Thou who hast given so much to me 
Give one thing more; a grateful heart." 

Meta F. Hutchison, 
United Thank Offering Custodian.

40 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 

REPORT OF AUDITORS 
April 8, 1937 

Mrs. William J. Gordon, President, 

Women's Auxiliary to The National Council, 

Diocese of North Carolina, 

Spray, North Carolina, 

Dear Madam: 

As requested I have made an examination of the Treasurer's 
Books for the twelve months ended December 31, 1936 and submit 
herewith my report consisting of the following Schedules: 

Summary of Receipts and Disbursements. 

Receipts and Disbursements by Funds. 

Reconciliation of Account with the Wachovia 

Bank & Trust Co., Salisbury, N. C. 

Statement of Receipts from Branches. 

The scope of the examination consisted of tracing all Receipts 
during the year into the Bank and determining that all listed 
disbursements were supported by carfceled checks. 

This Statement is intended to include all receipts for the year 
1936 even though part of the money was not received by your treas- 
urer until 1937. Items listed as "Deposits in Transit" represent 
money received during the year 1937 in payment of pledges or 
budget for 1936 and have been included in all statements of re- 
ceipts. No disbursements made subsequent to December 31st, 1936, 
are shown even though certain disbursements made during 1937 
may have been in payment of 1936 pledges. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Thos. P. Zum Brunnen, Sr. 

Certified Public Accountant. 



IMPORTANT 



All money except that for Box Work and the United Thank 
Offering must be sent to Mrs. J. A. Mackie, 934 W. Fifth St., 
Winston-Salem, N. C. Where an exception to this is contemplated, 
specific instructions will be sent to all Parish Presidents. See 
Constitution, Art. V. Sec. 4. 

For definite instructions for securing position on Roll of 
Honor, see page 52. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 



DUTIES OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 

1. Know the work of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

2. As the personal representative of the Diocesan President, 
they should keep in close touch with every Branch and report, 
regularly to the President; notifying her of any change of officers, 
and of any emergency in the District. 

3. Keep an up-to-date list of Branches and officers in the 
district. 

4. Have a meeting with District Officers, at least once a year 
for a round table discussion. 

5. Attend Executive Board meetings as representative of the 
branches of her District. 

6. Arrange for two District meetings a year; spring and 
fall, with programs that would furnish information and create 
interest in work undertaken by the Diocesan Auxiliary and in 
matters of immediate importance to the whole Church. 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

My first year as chairman of the District of Edgecombe has 
come to a close, and it is with a distinct feeling of thankfulness 
that I look back upon it. I deem it a great privilege to have been 
the chairman of such loyal and capable workers. 

Due to circumstances over which I had no control it has been 
impossible for me to do the things I had planned, but that in no 
sense has stopped the work in the District. We feel that much 
has been accomplished. 

The wonderful spirit of cooperation was clearly shown in the 
two splendid meetings. Both were well attended and every one 
enjoyed the cordial hospitality of Rocky Mount in the spring and 
Enfield in the fall. 

We were happy to have Bishop Penick with us at both meet- 
ings, and it seemed most fitting that Mrs. Gordon should come to 
Edgecombe for her first District meeting after she was made 
president. This was indeed a glad day for us all. 

Miss Sallie Dean, of Richmond, made a wonderful talk at the 
fall meeting. All who heard her are anxious to have her visit us 
again. 

Mr. David Yates, of Durham, enthusiastically presented the 
subject of summer camps. It is always a pleasure to have him 
back in Edgecombe. 

The noon-day meditations for both meetings are worthy of 
special mention. Our own Mrs. W. W. Simms from Wilson brought 
us a beautiful message in Rocky Mount, and in the fall the dis- 
trict heard with great pleasure a most inspiring address by Mrs. 
Raymond G. Parker, of Jackson. The work of each department in 
the District was clearly outlined by the respective chairmen. With 
very helpful suggestions for the branches, and from the excellent 
reports given by the branch presidents, we feel that very satisfac- 
tory work is being done. 



42 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 



The work among the Young People has been most encourag- 
ing. The secretary of this department, Mrs. H. C. Bourne, 
Tarboro, arranged with Miss Cutler a Sunday School Institute, 
which was held in Tarboro in the fall. This institute was attended 
by a large and interested group of Sunday School workers. 

The high light of the year was the Conference on Personal 
Religion held in Tarboro February 19. This Conference was con- 
ducted by Mrs. Gordon, our Diocesan President. Edgecombe is 
especially thankful for Mrs. Gordon and that meeting which will 
be held as a most sacred memory of those fortunate enough to 
have been there. 

Jennie W. Lewis, 
Chai) man District of Edgecombe. 



DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The reports given by the presidents of the branches in the 
District of Granville for 1936 were full of interest and encourage- 
ment. There has been an increased activity shown in the work 
of the Supply Department and a steady gain in our United Thank 
CrTering. Advancement and growth of the work among the young 
people is shown by development of our church schools and the 
organization of another Young People's Service League. 

There was a good attendance at the Educational Institute 
held in Raleigh. As a result of this the Mission Study Classes are 
better attended and better conducted. 

The fall meeeting of the district was held at Holy Trinity 
Church, Townsville, with good attendance. Miss Sallie Dean, of 
Richmond, Provincial Representative from the Province of Wash- 
ington, made a stirring address on the work of the Woman's 
Auxiliary. 

It is our earnest desire that we may become more deeply 
conscious of our responsibilities in the great work of Christ's 
Kingdom. 

Mary W. Graham, 

Chairman. 



DISTRICT OF WAKE 

The Wake District had a well attended meeting in October, 
at St. Paul's Church, Smithfield, but on advice of the Diocesan 
president, the spring meeting was omitted on account of the 
Diocesan meeting being held in Raleigh at Christ Church. 

The principal address at the fall meeting was made by the 
Rev. John A. Wright, of Christ Church, Raleigh, who brought 
powerfully to the minds of those present the desirability of re- 
newed and intensive work among young people. This suggestion 
has been acted upon in an impressive way by several of the 
branches of Wake. Renewed interest among the young people 
has developed to a most gratifying degree. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 43 



The United Thank Offering play presented by the St. Mary's 
young ladies during the Diocesan Convention was sponsored by 
the District Custodian, Mrs. Heriot Clarkson, and was so well re- 
ceived that it was repeated at a later date by request. 

The National Preaching Mission in November was well at- 
tended by the different branches and gave fresh inspiration to the 
members for renewed activities among missions. 

Our United Thank Offering for the fall showed a gratifying' 
increase over the previous one. 

We feel that each year we are going forward with the 
Church's program with increasing interest and success. 

Sue Dishman Gant, 
Chairman, District of Wake. 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The ten branches of the District of Orange report satisfac- 
tory progress in the various phases of Auxiliary endeavor. The 
United Thank Offering shows an increase over last year. The 
Social Service Depai'tment reports work well done. In the Educa- 
tional Department both books suggested, Understanding Race Re- 
lations and Work in Liberia, have been studied. The Educational 
Institute held in Raleigh, led by Mrs. Ellis, of Macon, Ga., was at- 
tended by a number of our members. In the Box Work Department 
every pledge was paid, the total amounting to $123.00 ; supply 
programs were held; children were clothed at the Thompson 
Home; garments were cut by some branches and made by others 
for the supply room in Burlington; boxes of new and second-hand 
clothes have been sent, and money raised for the Thompson 
Home. Over six thousand seven hundred coupons from soap wrap- 
pers have been sent to the Thompson Home. 

In our Young People's work we feel deeply interested, and we 
are hopeful that in the future we may be led to be of more help 
in this most important field. 

Our Prayer Partner, Miss Whitcombe, is remembered at our 
meetings; gifts have been se»t to her personally and to the work 
at St. Mary's Mission at Sagada in the Philippines. 

Representatives from our Branches were present for the Quiet 
Day at Burlington last fall, and also for the Conference on Personal 
Religion in Raleigh this spring. 

Our District meeting was held at St. Thomas Church, San- 
ford, in October. The attendance was good and much interest was 
shown in the encouraging reports. Our President, Mrs. William 
J. Gordon was with us and gave us a resume of the work to be 
done by the Auxiliary, urging us to go forward in ever increasing 
usefulness. A member of our Isolated Congregation was present 
and told most stirringly of the joy that had come to her and her 
family through the ministration of the Church. 

We trust that in the coming year our love and interest in our 
work may grow and be made acceptable to Him in whose name we 
serve. 

Bessie Harding Henry, 
Chairman, District of Orange* 



44 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL RBPORT 



DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

The two meetings of the District of Guilford, both Spring and 
Fall, during the past year have been characterized by a Forward 
Look — a deeper spirituality and personal service. A high standard 
has necessarily been set for us to maintain in the number of 
Diocesan officers in our district: the President and Secretary> the 
Vice-President and Supply Secretary, the Social Service Secre- 
tary and C. P. C. Secretary. For this we feel profoundly thankful 
and pray that others may follow where they have led. 

During the past year the Christian Social Service work in our 
branches is again the outstanding accomplishment of our district, 
having become to most of us, no longer a phase of our work, but 
a living reality. 

That the United Thank Offering may become a more vital 
part of each individual life and that each woman in the Church 
may feel the need, privilege and joy of thus spreading His King- 
dom by their ready gifts of thanksgiving and praise is prayerfully 
urged. 

Religious Education has gone forward through week-day Bible 
Classes, sponsoring of Sunday School Conventions, and Good Fri- 
day services in our Rural Districts. 

A new branch, St. Andrews, Trollingwood, has been reported. 

The full, comprehensive reports given by Departmental and 
Branch Secretaries show how fully the Auxiliary Program has 
been carried "Forward." May we, in the name of "Him," 
"Who hath anointed us, neglect not the gift that is in us," 1 
Timothy 4:14, "joyfully go forth in the earnest of His spirit, in 
our hearts, being helpers together by prayer, that the gift be- 
stowed upon us, by means of many persons thanks may be given 
by many on our behalf." 2 Cor. 1:11, 21, 22. 

Lillie Hill, 
Chairman Guilford District. 



REPORT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN DISTRICT FOR 1936 

The Forsyth-Rowan District finished its third year with Mrs. 
W. S. Holmes as District Chairman, with a year of active work. 
Two very interesting meetings were held. 

The Spring meeting met in St. Paul's Church, Salisbury, N. C, 
and was well attended. Mrs. Gordon, our new Diocesan President, 
met with us and gave an interesting address, speaking earnestly 
of the aims and purposes of the Auxiliary. Miss Maude Cutler, 
Chairman of the Young People's Work also met with us and 
stressed particularly our work among the Young People, in our 
several branches. 

Each District officer gave encouraging reports that showed 
increased interest over preceding years, due no doubt to the fact 
that during the last three years, Mrs. Holmes has had each 
Diocesan officer present at different meetings to explain more 
fully their several departments of work and to encourage us to 
work harder in each department of the Auxiliary. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 45 

The Fall meeting was held in Ascension Church, Davie County 
and was especially well attended. At this meeting, our Chairman 
had reports from each Branch represented and they were most 
encouraging, showing full and comprehensive programs from each 
branch. 

My prayer, as new District Chairman, is that we of the 
Forsyth-Rowan District, be "more and better" Auxiliary minded, 
not only in the Diocese and District work, but in each of our local 
branches or in so building a good Auxiliary at home we can 
stretch out into our District, making it stronger and more active 
and in turn be truly a good factor in the work of our Diocese. 

Ruth W. Woodward, 
Chairman Forsyth-Rowan District. 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

"Christ for the World," the keynote of the 1936 Annual Meet- 
ing, struck a responsive chord in the hearts of the women from 
this District. 

This was reflected in the Spring meeting which was held 
at the Chapel of Hope. Six women speakers were on the program, 
and in addition to giving a full account of the Annual Meeting 
they seemed to have caught the scope and significance of the 
Church's program and the importance of the Auxiliary in the life 
of the Church. Grateful appreciation was expressed for Miss Hall's 
leadership and for giving them the vision to see beyond local 
horizons. Two new branches were reported at this meeting: The 
Chapel of HoDe and the St. Andrew's branch. It was with regret 
that we heard Miss Emma Hall speak to us for the last time, as 
our President. Alaska was on her heart and mind and her last 
plea was for funds to send a nurse to Anvik. 

The Fall Meeting was held at St. Peter's Church, Charlotte. 
Committee reports were full and interesting, particularly that of 
the Prayer Partner Correspondent. We were privileged to have 
our new President, Mrs. William Gordon, speak to us on the "Every 
Member Canvass." Her message was divided into three parts: 
Stewardship, Discipleship, and Fellowship. She stressed Christ as 
the answer to the world's need and to our personal need — and 
urged that we put Him first. 

A heartening note from this District is the number of young 
women who have become Auxiliary conscious and are active in 
the field of service. This is especially true of St. Peter's branch and 
is due to the spiritual and energetic leadership of Mrs. E. J. 
Wannamaker, Jr. 

Genuine sorrow was felt in this District at the passing of our 
Prayer Partner, Mrs. Mary E. Coffin, of Ethete, Wyoming. A 
message of sympathy was sent to members of her family in the 
name of the women of the Auxiliary. Mrs. Tillie Hart, sister of 
Mrs. Coffin, was assigned to this District. She served briefly and 
retired to private life in Chicago. Deaconess Eleanore I. Sime of 
Fort Hall, Idaho, is our new Prayer Partner. We have accepted 
her with loving and friendly interest. 



46 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 



We are grateful that this District is outstanding in its United 
Thank Offering work. More women are using the Blue Box and our 
Offering shows a gradual increase at each "ingathering." 

Recruiting is being stressed this year. Mrs. C. E. B. Robinson, 
Diocesan Recruiting Secretary, sees the need to revive and revital- 
ize the Church, and she has offered us a program which inspires 
our best efforts. 

A conference on Personal Religion was held in this District 
early in Lent by Mrs. William Gordon. Her deep spiritual influence 
is keenly felt, and many women expressed gratitude for her fine 
leadership. 

CORRINE CHILDERS BALLARD, 

Chairman District of Mecklenburg. 



REPORT OF RICHMOND DISTRICT 

With grateful hearts we, of the Richmond district, acknowl- 
edge a most satisfactory year. A growing interest in the great 
work entrusted to us is manifest. 

The fall meeting of the District was held at Emmanuel 
Church, Southern Pines. At this time a good attendance was 
noted and many splendid reports were heard. The most encourag- 
ing work done was in the field of education and social service. 

Under the inspiration of Miss Maude Cutler a greater inter- 
est in the Church Schools have taken place. Outstanding in this 
field is the work reported by the Mary Clifford branch of Wades- 
boro. 

The District answered a call for clothing to the amount 
of $27.00 for an Indian Catechist. The United Thank Offering was 
encouraging. $38.00 was given towards the expense of the nurse 
sent to assist Miss Bessie Blacknall in Alaska. 

Albemarle has been added to our District and we are delight- 
ed to have the cooperation and help of the members of this 
Branch of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

It was a great privilege to have had Mrs. Gordon address 
us at the Fall meeting. Her great spiritual vision and deep earn- 
estness left each of us with a genuine desire for a more conse- 
crated service to our Master. 

Three new officers were elected at this time: Mrs. C. C. Hud- 
nell, Chairman of District; Mrs. Swett, Recruiting Secretary; 
and Mrs. Risden Little, Secretary of Young People's Work. 

The Lenten Study classes held in all branches have proven 
most successful. 

As we look forward to another year, our hope is to joyfully 
give the best within us and thus to accomplish better and more 
faithful work. 

Margaret Hudnell, 
Chairman of Richmond District. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 47 



NEGRO DISTRICT 

To render "True Service even though Small Service" was the 
aim of the Negro District for 1936. 

Two meetings were held for the year, one at the Church of 
the Redeemer, Greensboro, in May, and one at St. Cyprian's 
Church, Oxford, in October. 

The meeting at Greensboro was presided over by Miss Emma 
J. Hall, retiring president of the Woman's Auxiliary, and by the 
district chairman, Mrs. F. H. U. Edwards. Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon 
made an interesting talk on "Gifts and Service." 

Nine branches were represented at this meeting and reported 
their work for the year. These reports revealed much work in 
caring for the sick, providing clothing for the needy, and Church 
School educational work. A Round Table discussion was held, the 
topic being: "What is your Greatest Problem?" Many interesting 
problems were discussed and possible solutions given. 

The United Thank Offering for this meeting was $66.54. 

The officers for the next three years were elected with Mrs. 
Helena Harris, Littleton, as District Chairman. 

The meeting held at St. Cyprian's Church, Oxford, in October 
was greatly enjoyed by all. Thirteen branches of the total number 
of seventeen were represented at this meeting, and four branches 
reported by letter. 

We were very glad to have Miss Emma J. Hall and Mrs. Wm. 
J. Gordon present with us, each bringing to the meeting her great 
enthusiasm for the work. 

Bishop Penick spoke on "The Duty of the Auxiliary." 

The United Thank Offering for this meeting was $44.54. 

We were very grateful to the many ministers who were pres- 
ent, for we know that the work of any Auxiliary will make more 
progress when the minister of the church is interested in the 
work of his branch. 

The meeting closed with new interest aroused, lagging inter- 
est revived and new hope for the success of the Auxiliary. It is 
our daily prayer that these things may be conveyed to others 
through contact in "Service for the Master." 

Helena Harris, 
District Chairman. 



43 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 

COMMITTEE REPORTS 

REPORT OF RECRUITING SECRETARY 

The recruiting report for 1936 is a tribute to Mrs. Ben White, 
whose first questionnaire made the work so definite, as well as 
suggestive in going forward. A similar questionnaire was used 
this year, and again Forsyth-Rowan is well in the lead, both in 
recruiting, and in reporting their accomplishments and troubles 
to Mrs. R. L. Bernhardt, District secretary. Thirteen of fifteen 
branches sent in reports. Other districts are doing splendid work, 
which I learn about quite accidentally. Edgecombe District has one 
secretary who drove 56 miles to get her report off on time. 

You will be interested in some special activities reported: St. 
Andrews Mission, Rockingham County, tells of training and using 
boys and girls in evangelistic work. Eight families are transported 
to Church every Sunday in Hillsboro. Christ Church, Cleveland, 
is justly proud of the Junior Altar Guild recently formed. The 
most complete and enthusiastic report of St. Paul's Winston- 
Salem, concludes with two requests: "Pray for us; tell us what 
others are doing that we may do more." 

"Have you consulted with your rector concerning recruiting 
work?" was one question asked. On every paper answering "Yes" 
there was a full and enthusiastic report. Where the answer was 
"No" the report was mostly a question "What are we supposed 
to do?" 

Our troubles are legion! Reports are objected to; news of 
other branches is asked for. Mailing lists are 50 per cent incor- 
rect. Some branches eagerly ask for more to do ; others are work- 
ing so well without recruiting secretaries they dare not appoint 
such unneeded officers. 

What is RECRUITING? Adding to God's Army; restoring 
to God's Army. The ways of recruiting come thru earnestness 
and prayer. Recruiting was done long before the Auxiliary asked 
us to have secretaries. St. Paul recruited, and left us reports. 
The Auxiliary has seen the advantage of having a secretary in 
every branch who will ever keep before us the work to be done; 
who will help the rector in doing the work; who will guide all 
members in adding and restoring to God's Church; who will share 
with others the ways she has found most helpful. 

District Secretaries, KNOW your branch secretaries per- 
sonally. Demand ten minutes at your district meeting to meet 
with them and plan your work together. 

Branch Secretaries, know your district secretary, and be sure 
she knows your correct address. Consult with your rector for he 
can give you complete information about summer schools, con- 
ferences and special recruiting needs in your parish. For all other 
information, read the Carolina Churchman.

REPORT OF THE CHAIRMAN OF YOUNG PEOPLE'S WORK 
IN THE DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA FOR 1936 

I am very glad to make my report as Chairman instead of 
Secretary of Young People's work; because I think the changed 
title will help to clear up a mistaken idea on the part of some 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 49 



that I am a Director of Young People's Service League. In fair- 
ness to the young people any Director of their organization would 
be appointed by the Bishop and their officers and leaders. Our 
Committee, which is made up of a Chairman in each of the eight 
Districts and a Diocesan Chairman, is deeply interested in the 
work of the Young People's Service League and anxious to help 
them, but this particular organization is only a part of our work 
which was interpreted to me as an effort to help in meeting the 
needs of our boys and girls from birth to adulthood while they 
are developing into Christian men and women. Following this line 
of interpretation we are trying to help through the following. 

1. Parental education and Christian home life. 

2. Encouraging Churches to have Little Helper's Departments. 

3. Creating greater interest in training for Church school 
teachers. 

4. Sponsoring the service program through the Offerings of 
the Church school. 

5. Encouraging leaders to offer their services as Church school 
teachers. 

6. Urging attendance of Camps and Conferences. 

7. Reaching the Isolated boys and girls and putting them in 
touch with the Diocesan Sunday School Course by corre- 
spondence. 

8. Helping, when asked, to find Counsellors of Young People's 
Service League, and encouraging training for counsellors, 
and aiding this Organization in any other way possible. 

I wish to express my appreciation to the Chairmen of the 
Districts for their cooperation. Our work will require years for 
development, and while we have not accomplished anything near 
what we would like, we are thankful for the privilege of having 
some little part in so great a work. 

Maude Cutler 



REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

Letters asking for suggestions for helping our Prayer Part- 
ners and their missions saying they are "eager to help" is very 
encouraging. 

Deaconess Eleanore I. Sime, Home of the Good Shepherd, 
Fort Hall, Idaho, is the Prayer Partner given us by Missions 
House in place of Mrs. Hart at Ethete, Wy. 

I greatly appreciate the co-operation and interest of our re- 
spective Prayer Partner correspondents and their prayers and 
material assistance. 

It has been a privilege and inspiration to have been per- 
mitted to help in this splendid work. 

Praying God's blessing upon all concerned in this. 

Claudia J. Erwin Powe 



REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF WORK AMONG ISOLATED 

Your chairman is happy to report that during the past year 
Miss Cutler has taken over the work with isolated children. She 
has prepared special material for children denied the privilege 



50 FIFTY-FIFTH ANNUAL REPORT 



of regular church and Sunday School attendance and is sending 
it to parents of such children when they express a desire to have 
it and use it. 

This year no questionnaire was sent out to glean facts regard- 
ing the number of isolated women being reached and what was 
being done to give these women some part in the service of the 
Church. Instead the president of every branch was sent a letter 
in which your chairman quoted Bishop Finlay's statement made 
in Raleigh in February that thei^e is "an army of people outside 
of the Church today." These are people who are not isolated by dis- 
tance, people who could ccme if they wanted to come. Two search- 
ing; questions were asked in regai'd to which Bishop Penick wrote, 
"You have asked some plain, honest questions about our beloved 
Church in this diocese. To answer them will call for action and of 
course that is what you have been striving and praying for." 

The presidents were not urged to take this matter up with 
their branches, and were asked not to make a report regarding 
what they decided to do because any thing worthwhile done to 
bring about regular church attendance of all the children, youth, 
and adults of our Church would be of such spiritual quality that it 
would be difficult to report. 

Does facing any fact however appalling, which by God's help 
be changed, necessarily depress us? Isn't it rather the shutting 
our eyes to unpleasant facts that depresses us? 

Of this I am certain: that the women of the Episcopal Church 
of this Diocese can fill the church buildings to the bursting point 
and then build more churches to take care of all who want to at- 
tend regularly every Sunday, if they try to do it, and get the help 
which they know so well that God will give them for the task. 

Claudia Hunter, 
Chairman Work With the Isolated. 



CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 1937 REPORT 

Current periodicals sent regularly 83

Bibles, Testaments, etc 85 

Prayer Books and Hymnals 96 

Books — Theological and Secular 785 

Tracts and Church School Lessons 1,013

Expenditures $148.50 

Sixteen branches of the Diocesan Auxiliary are actively en- 
gaged in the work of the Church Periodical Club. 

Your chairman is °-lad to report that during the past year one 
branch in the Negro District enrolled in this department and has 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 51 

done efficient service. A letter of commendation was received from 
Miss Thomas, the Executive Secretary, in recognition of same. 

Although no report was received from one district, we were 
gratified to note in the 1936 report of this district's Recruiting Sec- 
retary that books had been furnished a theological student. 

At the beginning of the year, I wrote the president of each 
branch of the Auxiliary in the Diccese and asked that a C. P. C. 
secretary be appointed. I regret that replies have been received 
from only one-third of those to whom this appeal was made. 

It is my earnest hope that every Parish Secretary will feel 
as one of our active branch secretaries who regards the Church 
Periodical Club as an instrument of service in reach of all. 

From all parts of the world there come notes of appreciation 
for magazines, books, etc. 

One missionary writes: "I wish there were means by which 
we could show the members of the C. P. C. the great joy that 
comes to a missionary when he can again have books to keep him 
somewhere near the new movements of thought in the world 
today." 

One woman writes: "You have no idea how much the Readers 
Digest is enjoyed. After I have read it, my High School daughter 
reads it. Then it is passed on to a young man who works in a 
store where I work, and then I give it to the local library." 

A missionary in China writes: "We are grateful that the 
C. P. C. exists to keep our minds stimulated, animated and fasci- 
nated." 

With these words of appreciation and with the knowledge of 
what the C. P. C. means to our Diocesan missionaries, we cannot 
afford to underestimate the work of this organization. 

Mossie Long Hartzell, 
Chairman.

FOREWORD 



This Year Book is at once a record and a hope, a record 
of what has been accomplished in the past year and a hope for 
better things in the year ahead. 

What is here recorded is of no value except it urges us to 
a greater zeal that will make us glad and free in His service. 
Let us study it, use it and make it our own. 

The only cure for this world's ills is the glorious life of the 
Son of God and ours is the privilege to proclaim this life. In 
our giving may we remember the measure of the Master and in 
our service may we dedicate our souls and our bodies a living 
sacrifice. 

Faithfully yours,

Christ, our Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human

of our Faith; to a sincere and simple effort in our daily living 
to follow with humility the example of our Saviour.

have thought, and said, and done this day, beseeching thee to 
pardon all that has been amiss in us, and to accept for thy 
glory all that has been done in accordance with thy holy will; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Of the Momen ot the Church 



All Thy works praiselWO Lord, 
and Thysaintsgive thanks unto Th«e: 

ThatThypower-, Thy glory, and <*.' 
mightiness of Thy Kingdom might he s \ 
Known unto men 




Thou givest quietness of heart, and great peace, 
and festive joy. 

When spiritual comfort is given thee from God, 
receive it with thankfulness; but understand that it is 
the gift cf God, not any desert of thine. 

Grace ever attendeth him that is duly thankful. — 
Thomas a Kempis. 



During this 18th triennium of the United Thank Offering, 
let us think of the immeasurable influences that have gone out, 
the unseen and unrecorded joys and triumphs resulting from 
this Offering. 

Let us remember in thankfulness those thousands of wo- 
men whose prayers and gifts have been offered in past years. 

Let us give thanks for the outward and visible results of the 
Offering in many lands, for churches, schools, and hospitals, for 
health and security made possible to many retired workers, and 
for the work of women missionaries now in the field. 

Let us pray for the new missionaries of the coming years, 
now unknown, whose recruiting and training may be provided 
by the next Offering. 

Let us pray that the Offering of 1940 may come from an 
ever deepening knowledge of the love of God; that .he true 
meaning of thankfulness may grow in the hearts of all Chris- 
tians, thankfulness for outward blessings, for joyful events and 
anniversaries and relationships; still more for the "blessed hope 
Ox everlasting life," for knowledge of truih, for "the means of 
grace and for the hope of glory"; and above all, thankfulness 
for our Lord Himself, the living Christ. — Spirit of Missions. 



16 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Some Well Known United Thank 
Offering Facts 

Every three years (since 1889) at the time of the General 
Convention, the women of the Church, at a Corporate Com- 
munion, place their United Thank Offerings upon the golden 
alms-basin and offer them to Almighty God for His work 
throughout the world. 

The United Thank Offering is given to the Church for the 
support of women workers in various missionary enterprises. 
This includes training, equipping, sending, and care when sick 
or disabled, together with a designated amount for buildings 
in the field. 

The United Thank Offering increased from $2,000 in 1889 to 
$1,101,450.40 in 1928, and amounted to $861,693.07 in 1937. 

The United Thank Offering has erected more than a dozen 
school buildings which enable Indian, Negro, and Mountain 
boys and girls of our own country and boys and girls of other 
lands to receive preparation for lives of Christian service. 

The Church has sent out under the United Thank Offer- 
ing more than four hundred women workers, who have served 
as doctors, nurses, teachers, social workers, evangelists, student 
workers, and field secretaries. 

The United Thank Offering supports one man in the field — 
the Rt. Rev. Peter T. Rowe, Bishop of Alaska, whose salary is 
provided from the income of the combined offerings of 1892 and 
1895. . 

The owner of a United Thank Offering box has, through its 
use, a real opportunity for spiritual growth. 

The Offering is generally gathered in the dioceses twice a 
year for doing so helps the parish treasurers to keep track of 
the boxes and replace those lost or destroyed, and it keeps the 
United Thank Offering before the owners of the boxes. The 
Offering gathers more interest if deposited twice a year. The 
Offering need not be limited to pennies. The "widow's mite" 
represented all she had. 

If you wish to know the joy of owning and using a blue 
box you may secure one from your parish treasurer of the 
United Thank Offering. 

From this diocese, the following are United Thank Offering 
Workers: 

Misses Bessie Blacknall, Laura Clark, Norene Quern, Mary 
Ramsaur, Brightsie Savage, Montie Home, Roberta Lassiter, Inez 
Middleton and Mrs. Singleton.

Rev. Francis Cox, who is a missionary from this 
diocese in China, spoke on "Fellowship in China". He 
expressed appreciation for the interest of the Aux- 
iliary and assured the women of the appreciation of 
the Chinese themselves for what has been done for 
them. He gave a brief history of missions in China 
and said the permanent foundations had been laid in 
the past two centuries. He told of the growth of an 
autonomous church and the degree of self support it 
was attaining, deploring the present tragedy. Mr. 
Cox gave an interesting report o'f Gen. Chiang Kai- 
shek's Christian experience and emphasized the at- 
titude of Chinese Christians toward the Japanese.

Mrs. McAlfee impressed the value of the Box Work 
in the Mission field by her illustrations of the use of 
baby clothing sent her for health clinics, much work 
having been done by her and native co-workers in 
improving health conditions among children. She told 
in detail of the training of some of the natives, who 
are today valuable church workers, and gave an en- 
couraging report of the responsiveness of the Upi peo- 
ple to Christian teaching. She made an appeal that 
we do more for the love of Christ.

mer in Oxford on "Faith and Work" and in Eding- 
"burgh on "Faith and Order". He stressed the need

the women of the Auxiliary in this project. 

Miss Mary Wood McKenzie, who is a missionary 
from this diocese, serving in Liberia, made an ad- 
dress on "Fellowship in Liberia". She expressed her 
gratitude to the Auxiliary for its loyal support in the 
past and its promised support in the future. Miss Mc- 
Kenzie gave many instances of how lives have been 
changed through Christianity, which has made the 
work of the mission more than worthwhile. She closed 



FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 



with an appealing story, which illustrated the thank- 
fulness of the natives themselves for the mission. 

Mrs. U. T. Holmes Jr., Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Findings made the following report: 

REPORT OF FINDINGS COMMITTEE 

1. That the large and interested attendance at this Con- 
vention is indicative of a wider and deeper sense of our re- 
sponsibility as members of the Woman's Auxiliary. That the pro- 
ceedings of the entire meeting have been dispatched with pre- 
cision and enthusiasm. That the spirit of the General Conven- 
tion has been brought to this meeting by our President tnd the 
speakers. 

2. That we should be very grateful to our President for 
giving herself as she has done and still plans to do to the work 
of the Auxiliary and thereby inspiring others to unflagging 
service. 

3. That the account by Rev. Francis Ccx of the work in 
China made us conscious of our duty to this peace-loving peo- 
ple, and that we, like our fellow Christians in China, should 
sympathize with the helpless people of Japan. 

4. That the reports of the diocesan officers were a chal- 
lenge to more intelligent and more effective study en our part — 
a call not to be satisfied with the easy and pleasant little acts 
of Christian kindness but to the more difficult service of study 
and reform. 

5. That Mrs. McAlfee brought us a most vivid and realistic 
account of practical Christianity among the wild tribes in the 
Phillipines. 

6. That the report given by Mrs. Helena Harris of the work 
of the Negro Auxiliaries was the best ever given and showed 
marked interest and growth, due in great part to the help and 
encouragement of Miss Emma Hall. 

7. Thai Bishop Oldham's illuminating and forceful ad- 
dress made us aware of the need for and the possibility of one 
church united against the forces of destruction rampant in the 
world today, and requires us to direct our individual and cor- 
porate thinking to this compelling issue. 

3. That we are grateful to Miss Cutler for her earnest ef- 
forts to provided guidance in our work with the young people 
and that we should cooperate with her more whole-heartedly, 
also that we take a more personal interest in our young people 
at the Thompson Orphanage and after they leave the Orphanage. 

9. That we should feel humble before the great courage 
and resourcefulness of our missionaries as pictured by Miss Mc- 
Kenzie in her account cf their work in Liberia. 

10. That we will leave the Convention with a real sense 
of our Fellowship with Christians throughout the world. 

11. That Bishop Penick in his closing address showed us 
that in Christ's fellowship with God, we had, as always, the 
Perfect Example of what our fellowship in Christ might be. 
Jesus' life was one of discipline, of obedience to God; of faith- 
ful fulfillment of the humble daily task. Christ was a learner 
and so should we be, that knowing Him we might love Him, 
and loving Him, we shall serve Him. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 27 

Rev. John L. Jackson, Director of the Adult 
Conference at Kanuga, spoke of plans for the confer- 
ence to be held this summer. 

The Courtesy Committee made the following- 
report: 

The Courtesy Committee in the name of each individual 
who has attended the Convention wishes to thank all who have 
made possible this helpful and inspiring Annual Meeting. We 
are deeply grateful to Mr. Craighill, the vestry, the Choir, and 
all the members cf the Church of the Good Shepherd, and also 
the congregations of other Churches of the city for their kind 
hospitality. 

To the Rev. Mr. Cox, Mrs. McAlfee and Miss McKenzie for 
their enlightening and moving messages from the field; to Bishop 
Oldham, who was good enough to come to us from a great dis- 
tance, bringing us news of world import and individual chal- 
lenge, we are especially grateful. 

To our Bishop and Mrs. Gordon, we give our heartfelt 
thanks for the spiritual benefits received from the program. 
The Convention has strengthened our zeal and renewed our de- 
termination to carry on the work of our Master. 

A service for the installation of the new officers 
was held. 

The closing address of the Convention was given 
by Bishop Penick, his subject being ''Fellowship with 
Christ". In speaking of the fellowship which Christ 
had with God his Father, he reminded us that 
Christ's experience was subjective. As Christ led a 
disciplined life so should our lives be under discipline. 
The Bishop closed by saying the spirit with which we 
do things is most important — if we love Christ, we 
will desire to serve Him. 

Bishop Penick pronounced the benediction and 
the Fifty-sixth Annual Meeting was adjourned. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Anne S. Easley, 
Secretary 



28 ' FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 

EXTRACTS FROM THE NORTH CAROLINA CHURCHMAN 
CONCERNING THE ANNUAL MEETING 1938 

Rousing Plea for Church Unity Made by 
Albany Bishop 



"Events are moving very fast and the enemies of all re- 
ligion are becoming so powerful as to create a situation that 
demands that something be done and dene quickly. It is an 
occasion when 'the King's business requireth haste'," said the 
Right Reverend G. Ashton Oldham, Bishop of the Diocese of 
Albany, speaking to the delegates and visitors to the 56th An- 
nual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary, Tuesday evening, Jan- 
uary 18, in Rocky Mount. "For a long time we have professed 
our interest in Christian unity and have set forth some excel- 
lent plans toward that end. It it be true, as I believe it is, that 
our Church has a very special contribution to make toward the 
unity of Christendom, then a heavy responsibility lies upon us 
to put these plans into effect." 

The large congregation listened attentively as the president 
of tile World Alliance for International Friendship through tne 
Churches described the atmosphere in which the great world 
conterences on faith and order met in Edinburgh and Oxford. 
He said the humility and reliance upon God's guidance in all 
that was done was most impressive. We must pray, be humble, 
ana make experiments in Christian unity, if we wish to attain 
our ob]ective. The bishop advised his hearers not to be su- 
perior in their attitudes toward other communions, but instead 
to realize that we have something to give them, and something 
can be learned from them. "The-Church-that-is-to-be" may 
eventually arise from such world conference as those recently 
held, he concluded. 



REV. FRANCIS COX OF CHINA, MISS MARY WOOD Mc- 

KENZIE OF LIBERIA, AND MRS. S. G. McALFEE OF THE 

PHILLIPINE ISLANDS SPEAK OF THEIR LABORS 

FOR CHRIST 



Fellowship in Faith, keynote of the Auxiliary Annual 
Meeting, was made alive and vibrant by the appearance on the 
program of three missionary speakers who spoke on fellowship 
in their respective lands. 

Mrs. L. G. McAlfee sketched a picture of the wild girls 
of the Tiruray tribe on the island of Mindanao, Phillipines, say- 
ing that some of them were even afraid of their own dead rel- 
atives. Fear of evil spirits, fear of the dead, and many other 
fears haunt this primitive people. Miss Kate Spruill "modeled" 
a typical wild girl of the Tiruray tribe, wild in the sense of 
being uncivilized and un-Christianized, showing the customary 
dress with a snake-pattern woven into it, and numerous beads 
and heavy anklets which all the girls wear. A sort of turban, 
similar to that seen on American gypsies, is worn on the head. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 29 

When t first coming to civilized centers such as Zamboanga 
these girls' would not speak to the white people, and when 
walking with them down the street, would follow along behind 
instead of by their side. Mrs. McAlfee won one's heart by giving 
her a ride on a merry-go-round. She told a touching and sin- 
cerely honest story of how these backward folk are responding 
to Christ and becoming teachers, nurses and house-wives in 
their native villages. 

Baby clinics were started in her fields, she continued, when 
American auxiliaries sent boxes of baby clothing to her for dis- 
tribution. Gne man appeared with a baby having an angry, red 
sore en its head resembling raw beefsteak and as large as half 
a hand. It seemed that the man was so anxious to win a prize 
of baby clothing, he had literally scrubbed the child's skin off 
its head. The missionary said men, women and children trav- 
eled miles to see her, as she was the first white woman they 
had ever seen. The crowds entered heartily into her campaign 
to improve infant hygiene via the "baby clinics and contests." 
Mrs. McAlfee wore, in contrast to the native girl's costume, the 
clothes of a Christianized woman. Mr. McAlfee, who labors 
with her in their difficult but fruitful field, did not speak due 
to limitation of time. 

Miss Mary Wood McKenzie, of Liberia, and native of 
North Carolina, gave a convincing and inspiring account of her 
efforts in Africa. She told of a man who is senior warden of 
her mission, and a senator. He refused the offer to be Governor 
of his county, she said, because he felt that he could do more 
good for his people in the legislature. This same man often 
stood in the legislature against every other member of his 
party, if necessary, Miss McKenzie said. Such instances and 
others she described have convinced her that results of 100 
years' work in Liberia are worthwhile. 

Another native North Carolinian, the Rev. Francis Cox, of 
Soochow, China, gave an interesting and moving picture of his 
work in that war-torn country. He said the Chinese are peace- 
loving by nature, and that the Church was just attaining auton- 
omy in China when war came. Mr. Cox gave a condensed his- 
tory of China as a necessary background to understanding its 
people and government. He pleaded for continued fellowhip 
with the Christian element both in China and Japan, joining 
with the other speakeis, in thanking the women of the Church 
for their constant support which tremendously encourages the 
missionaries and people with whom they work. 



30 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 



BISHOP PENICK DELIVERS CLOSING CHARGE TO 
AUXILIARY ANNUAL MEETING 



What was Christ's fellowship in God? Choosing as his sub- 
ject, cur fellowship in Christ. Bishop Penick closed the 56th 
annual meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary, Wednesday noon. 
The bishop declared that his subject was one upon which our 
words should be few. Christ lived and died without leaving a 
single written word for cur guidance. We know Him only 
through reminiscences, remembrances of others. Therefore all 
His teachings are objective, His experience with God, however, 
was subjective. 

The bishop developed the account of our Lord going up 
to Jerusalem as a bo3 r , saying that Jesus had a rule of life, 
in that Jcseph and Mary and Jesus went up to be taxed 
"every year". We need a "rule of life," discipline, the diocesan 
said. Obedience to God is the only thing that liberates us. We 
can disobey God, He does not make us obey. Freedom comes for 
us. as it did for Christ, through obedience. 

"'Then Jesus was a learner. He sat in the temple, hearing 
them and asking them questions. Our discipleship is youthful, 
immature. We need to listen and ask questions if we would 
know fellowship in Christ. 

""Again, the Master exercised His freedom by deliberately 
choosing to be identified with obscurity for eighteen years. We 
know little of the hidden Jesus, but we may assume that" His 
activities during this period were in preparation for His pub- 
lic ministry later. Jesus prepared for His public life by sweeping 
the shavings out of a carpenter shop. Does this not suggest 
to us that through simple, homely, routine chores we may be 
prepared for His kingdom?" 

The bishop closed by saying the spirit with which we do 
things is the important factor. Jesus is known as much as He 
is loved. If you love Him, you will serve Him. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 31 

THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS TO THE 

CONVENTION OF 1938 

Bishop Penick, Women of the Auxiliary and Guests, 
Greeting: 

We are met under conditions to which we must 
give our best thought and devotion. First of all, this 
Annual Session is in the nature of an experiment, as 
it is our first meeting in mid-winter rather than in an 
anticipated springtime setting. The change has been 
made in the best interests of our work ; it is our place 
to endeavor to appraise the results. The annual meet- 
ing is for the consideration of the past year's activi- 
ties, the major portion of which ended on December 
31, to make a new beginning with the new calendar 
year. From this point of view, January seems a rea- 
sonable time to meet. 

We are meeting too, in the atmosphere that 
comes to us triennially in the wake of general con- 
vention. The keynote of our meeting, "Fellowship in 
Faith and W T ork," which we have tried to develop 
throughout the program, is the same as that used in 
the triennial meeting in Cincinnati. Very simply in- 
terpreted, this brief phrase means that God has 
made us all, and loves us all, and expects us to live 
and serve together as members of His family. Its im- 
plications are tremendous as they challenge us to 
search our attitudes, our prejudices, and the practical 
expression of our Christian faith. The two outstand- 
ing messages of General Convention concerned "Chris- 
tian Unity" and a forward missionary program. I 
shall not anticipate the message we shall hear this 
evening from Bishop Oldham, but I do urge us to ap- 
proach our fellow Christians with a more sincere 
spirit of appreciation, and to dwell more upon the 
great fundamentals that we have in common and less 
upon our differences, and to engage in such practical 
concerted Christian activities as the opportunity offers. 
One such occasion is the World Day of Prayer, ob- 
served annually on the first Friday in Lent. Is it too 
much to hope that each branch of this diocesan Aux- 
iliary shall share in the observance of this day to- 
gether with the other missionary societies of that 
day? 

General Convention has ordered that the church 
shall go forward in her missionary march, but the re- 



32 FIFTY SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 

sponse must come from the individuals in the ranks. 
\our Auxiliary delegates to Cincinnati were very 
happily seated immediately behind the delegation 
from Michigan, and from them we bring you this di- 
rect and searching message of the individual's re- 
sponsibility: 

I love Jesus Christ and want to be His disciple. 
Therefore I must set forward His Kingdom on earth. 

To do this I must prepare myself by study, wor- 
ship and prayer. Having prepared myself, I must work 
individually and in my group in the Five Fields of 
service — the parish, the community, the diocese, the na- 
tion ~nd the world. 

1 cannot do all of the work of the world, so I must 
give as generously as possible that others may do it. 

finally, I believe that it matters tremendously 
whether cr not I, one woman, do this, and it will 
affect the progress of the Kmgdom. 

I have read the branch reports with interest. On 
the whole they show reason for encouragement and 
tnanksgiving, both in organization and in activity. 
Particularly do we rejoice in a gift of life from 
St. meter's, Charlotte, in the appointment of Miss No- 
rene Quern to teach in the Catnedral School for Girls, 
Havana. 

1 submit to you a brief report of your President's 
activities since the last Annual Meeting. 1 have shared 
in eignt branch meetings and twelve district meet- 
ings, attended two meetings of the Auxiliary Execu- 
tive Board, and one of the Finance Committee, three 
meetings of the Diocesan Executive Board, and one 
meeting of the Vade Mecum Camp committee. I 
taught the Auxiliary course at the St. Augustine's 
Conference and made the twilight talks at the Aux- 
iliary conference at Vade Mecum. Outside the diocese, 
1 have attended three meetings of the Provincial 
Board, addressed the Auxiliary of Epiphany Church, 
Danville, and the Conference of the Diocese of South- 
ern Virginia at Chatham, made two addresses to the 
Auxiliary of Trinity Church, Asheville, taught two 
courses at the Kanuga Adult conference and presided 
at Auxiliary Day, attended the triennial meeting and 
led one of the sectional groups. 

Our past year seems, each to the other, a busy 
one, but we meet today amid such solemn world con- 
ditions that we must ask ourselves, "How vital has 
it all been?" Has it made any difference to our re- 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 

spective communities that we have a branch of the 
Auxiliary there? Have men and women, amid all the 
temporal uncertainties, found God through His use of 
us? In addition to our gifts and our deeds of Christian 
kindness, have we shared our Christ? Or have we 
through all the maze of our organization and activity, 
failed to see the real purpose of discipleship and of 
the Auxiliary- The primary purpose of the Auxiliary 
is not things, but the uplifting of Christ that He may 
draw men unto Himself. It is not selfish to say that our 
chief concern as Auxiliary women is not with China 
or Japan or the other distressed nations of the 
earth, but with the kind of disciple I am right where 
I live, and when that is acceptable, I can be used, 
under God, to have a proper weight on world condi- 
tions. "The Father seeketh such to serve Him". But 
no half-hearted discipleship or divided allegiance 
will avail. We must live all that these blessed words 
imply, Here I offer and present myself, make me 
what thou wouldst have me to be, and then, dear 
Lord, use even me.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 35 

REPORT OF SUPPLY SECRETARY FOR 1937 

The work in the Supply Department has continued to grow. 
Each successive year the Diocese of North Carolina has been 
allotted an increased quota. In 1937 we have been able to fill 
cur allotment by the fine cooperation of the District and 
Eranch Chairmen, who have extended themselves in faithful 
work and close buying. 

The interest throughout the Diccese in the Supply work 
has deepened, as is evidenced by personal letters, inquiries and 
increased pledges from the Branches. In several Districts one 
hundred per cent of the Branches have reported. 

Realizing that the District Chairmen are both capable and 
willing to do the work, I have entrusted them with the buy- 
ing, cutting and making of the garments used in our Mission 
boxes. The result is that we have never had more attractive or 
better made garments. All of the Districts have done excellent 
work in this department. 

Letters from our missionaries in regard to personal and 
mission boxes sent them show great appreciation and are sim- 
ulating to us. 

I am glad to report that all of cur work for 1D37 has been 
completed and a special, offering of $54.90 has been sent to the 
National headquarters for our missionaries from China who 
are refugeeing in Japan. Corinna H. Gant,

36 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 



CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 

Diocesan reports indicate a lively interest in Christian So- 
cial Service. While the work has been widely varied in scope, 
there seems to be a desire on the part of many to pioneer and 
"blaze new trails" in an effort to cure our social ills rather than 
accept them as something we will always have with us. 

This is a healthy sign and once a militant, Christ-like so- 
ciety becomes aroused to the economic bondage and social de- 
gradation of our fellowrnen, we will become a mighty force in 
moulding public opinion to the end that a better social order 
is achieved. 

Whether in city, town or tiny hamlet, every woman has 
the privilege of the ballet, and she should use it intelligently. 
It is our Christian duty to enlighten ourselves on legislation 
which affects public welfare. Lei us become informed women 
and then we will no longer be indifferent women, but will 
strive to do our bit for the good of humanity. 

A challenge to the Church is contained in the statement 
of Roger Babson. considered by many to be our most reliable 
economic analyst, who said: "We will have better government 
and better business only when we have better people. And our 
only hope is that the churches and educational institutions will 
produce them." Let us accept our part of that responsibility! 

The woik done by many branches is worthy of special 
mention, but from Emanuel Church at Southern Pines comes 
a note of progress and pioneering. This branch concentrates upon 
the betterment of health conditions. It maintains a Committee 
on Pre-natal Work which coordinates its efforts with that of the 
county nurse in charge of this particular field. The Executive 
Committee of the Committee on Negio Welfare, which main- 
tains a venereal clinic for the contiol of extreme social dis- 
eases, is made up in its white membership of the members of 
Emanuel Church. 

The smaller branches haven't had an opportunity for service 
in the broader field, but they do an amazing amount of work, so 
much of which there is no record save in the Book of Life r 
but which is indelibly inscribed by Him who sees all things.

REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY 

1937 



Sixty six of you have reported to me, and as I see it I 
must report back to you not only on our achievements but on 
our needs for the coming year. 

With so many branches not reporting, figures would mean 
little, therefore I have omitted them. I have tried hard to see 
through your reports and get to know you, to find out what the 
Auxiliary needs in Religious Education. 

Quickened inteiest in the women is the need which is 
voiced by most. 

The majority of the branches feel that the answer for this 
is new program material but it seems to me that that is not the 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 37 

answer. I searched the reports a second time to see what others 
thought, and in four of them I found suggestions which seemed 
to me steps toward this end. 

First in a request for suitable Bible study material. The 
second suggestion is for more Quiet Days or Retreats. The 
third suggestion is for bet er attendance at Church, Church 
School and Study Classes. And fourth, I quote, "Gradual educa- 
tion of the women that rummage sales are not the works of 
'faith and works'. Teach the women to be neighborly; teach them 
holiness. There is no limit to the work we could do if we in- 
clude this general attitude in our Educational Program." 

I feel sure that the request for Retreats throughout the 
Diocese is the outgrowth of the four Quiet Days held by Mrs. 
Gordon last year for they made a deep impression upon the 
women who attended. 

Our Diocesan Conference at Vade Mecum met many needs 
in our spiritual life. First, that for true fellowship in its deepest 
sense of mutual understanding, which was had through work 
and play together, and through having time and place for talk 
-one with another about matieis of the Spirit. 

The second need which was met was a better understand- 
ing of the plans and aims of the Auxiliary through study of 
methods. The most important need of all, a drawing nearer to 
God, was met through Bishop Penick's class on the parables 
of the New Testament and through worship together in the 
freshness of the early morning and in the evening shadows of 
the everlasting hills. At every one of these evening services 
Mrs. Gordon flung the women a glorious challenge to victorious 
living which stirred them to the depths. 

The three institutes on Rebuilding Rural America held by 
the Rev. C. E. B. Robinson were full of ideas which could be 
most constructive. 

The Diocesan Christmas cards in some instances filled a 
deep spiritual need. 

As we look forward to our theme for this triennial let us 
see what the committee on Findings of the Triennial Meeting 
has to say. They asked themselves, "How shall we work out a 
program for the women of the Church which will deepen and 
extend fellowship in faith and work?" 

Six topics were included in their report. Evangelism, Chris- 
tian Unity and Cooperation, War and Peace, Social and Eco- 
nomic Life, Service and Personnel, and Church and State. 

Two characteristic statements from the Findings were, "We 
-must keep in mind that Christianity never fails nor can fail 
but that we fail in our witness". And again, "The first step in 
evangelism must always be a renewing of our own faith." 

What is Religious Education? "It is preparation of the 
Spirit for its Life." 

I give you the slogan which Bishop Stewart gave the Gen- 
eral Convention — "Not More Money but More Grace." 

Rosa Heath Long, 

Educational Secretary 



FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 



UNITED THANK OFFERING— 1937 

Previously reported 1935-1936 $11,335.51 

1937 Spring $3,095.81 

1937 Fall 3,276.72 

Tc^al for 1937 6,372.53 

Interest 1937 239.26 

Total presented at General Convention 517,947.30 

Collected after General Convention S 70.77 

That the United Thank Offering is a vital force in the life 
cf the women of the Church was truly demonstrated in a great 
Service of Presentation at the Trienniel meeting in October. 
Thirty-two missionary Bishops meeting together to celebrate 
the Holy Communion with some 5,000 faithful people could not 
be a mere gesture. An offering of $861,693.07 presented to the 
Church for the spreading of Christ's Kingdom could come only 
from an inward and spiritual grace expressed in terms of 
sacrificial giving and thankful hearts. 

The diocese of North Carolina may well be proud of a 
good part in that offering. Words are not needed to make this 
report. An increased offering each year — $5,396.98 in 1935; 
$5,762.56 in 1936; and $6,372.53 in 1937— tells its own story of 
interested and faithful women. A gain of $4,087.58 and a total 
of $177,947.30 this trienniel must bring gladness to us all. 

The United Thank Offering must continue to grow. To ac- 
complish this may mean that we shall work, pray, and give as 
never before; it may mean sacrifice that we have not yet ex- 
perienced. 

We must be aware of our women workers in the field and 
pray for them daily; that their hope that the Kingdoms of this 
world may become the Kingdom of our Lord,may be realized. 
We reached the depths in 1934. We have climbed steadily and 
surely each year since, both in interest and in generosity. May 
this increased interest and generosity be a permanent resolve 
in this diocese. 

I thank you for having given me a part in this great work 
and it is with an humble and greatful heart that I bid you: Go 
Forward with the United Thank Offering. 

Respectful^ submitted, 

Meta F. Hutchison, 
Custodian

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 41 

January 15, 1938. 
Mrs. William J. Gordon, President, 
Women's Auxiliary to the National Council, 
Diocese of North Carolina, 
Spray, North Carolina. 

Dear Madam: 

We have made an examination of the records of the Treas- 
urer's books of the WOMEN'S AUXILIARY OF THE DIOCESE 
OF NORTH CAROLINA pertaining to the cash receipts and 
disbursements for the year ended December 31, 1937, and sub- 
mit herewith our report. 

Recorded cash transactions for the year under examination 
are classified on Summary of Cash receipts and Disbursements, 
Exhibit "A". Analysis of the various fund accounts for the year 
is submitted on Schedule 1. Receipts from individual branches 
of the Auxiliary are listed and classified as on Schedule 2. 

Cash accounts were examined and cancelled checks were in_ 
spected. The balance on deposit in Wachovia Bank and Trust 
Company of Winston-Salem was verified by a certificate re- 
ceived from the depositary. Collections received in January, 
1938, but applicable to pledges for the year 1937, have been 
charged to the bank as deposits in transit. 

The last available statement of Wachovia Bank and Trust 
Company of Salisbury covering the account carried by the for- 
mer Treasurer, Mrs. Ross Sigman, showed a balance at April 
30, 1937 of $111.00 which was reserved to cover checks No. 368 
and No. 424, recorded as outstanding at that date. 

Respectfully submitted, 
C. E. Elberson & Company 
By Charles E. Elberson, C. P. A.

Offering must be sent to Mrs. J. A. Mackie, 934 W. Fifth St.,

46 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 



DUTIES OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 

1. Know the work of the Woman's Auxilairy. 

2. As the personal representative of the Diocesan Presi- 
dent, they should keep in close touch with every Branch and 
report, regularly to the President; notifying her of any change 
of officers, and of any emergency in the District. 

3. Keep an up-to-date list of Branches and officers in the 
district. 

4. Have a meeting with District Officers, at least *once a 
year for a round table discussion. 

5. Attend Executive Board meetings as representative of 
the branches of her District. 

6. Arrange for two District meetings a year; spring and 
fall, with programs that would furnish information and create 
interest in work undertaken by the Diocesan Auxiliary and in 
matters of immediate importance to the whole Church. 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

At the Fall meeting in Roanoke Rapids, the District of Edge- 
combe accepted with deepest regret the resignation of the Chair- 
man, Mrs. £. W. Lewis, and a new Chairman was elected at 
this lime. 

The Spring meeting in Tarboro was marked by the unusual- 
ly good reports given by the President of each branch. The 
Bishop suggested that these reports be summarized into one re- 
port showing the value and scope of our work. The Chairman 
tried the plan of having the regular meeting go straight through 
to the lunch hour, with the time after lunch allotted to sepa- 
rate conferences between district officers and their branch secre- 
taries. This proved of undoubted value. 

In Roanoke Rapids the outstanding value of the meeting 
were the guests who spoke to us. These were Mrs. A. W. Tucker 
of China, Bishop Penick, our own President Mrs. W. J. Gordon, 
Mrs. W. L. Long and Miss Maude Cutler. We hope to translate 
the spiritual joy of listening to their talks into active, effective 
service. 

During the past year our United Thank Offering has shown 
a steady increase; and the branches almost without exception 
had a planned program of study for the year, which included 
programs on the study book. 

The reports show a general desire on the part of our mem- 
bers to give added emphasis in the coming year to those activi- 
ties which tend to deepen the spiritual life of the individual. 

Marion Alston Bourne, 
District Chairman 



DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The Granville District of the Woman's Auxiliary had a 
most enthusiastic meeting in October at Holy Innocents, Hen- 
derson. One hundred and four members were present. 

The United Thank Offering has shown a steady increase 
since 1934. In 1937 it was $39.09 more than in 1936. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 47 

Mrs. J. G. Williams of Warrenton gave the District meet- 
ing a splendid report on Vade Mecum; Mrs. H. G. Cooper 
brought Miss Lindley's message from the Triennial to the woman 
of the Auxiliary — "Preparation for the Holy Communion". We 
were delighted to have with us Mrs. Annie Cheshire Tucker, 
wife of Dr. A. W. Tucker, medical missionary of St. Luke's Hos- 
pital, Shanghai, China. She spoke most interestingly of the 
Church's work in China and said that gratitude was the most 
outstanding trait of the Chinese. Mrs. Gordon gave a short mes- 
sage to the district, "We must meet together in fellowship, then 
go out in service." 

It was decided to have a meeting in the spring this year — 
the date to be decided upon later. 

Fcur new officers were elected: 

District Chairman, Mrs. Eric Flannagan, Henderson. 

Educational Secretary, Mrs. Arch Taylor, Oxford. 

Recruiting Secretary, Mrs. B. K. Lassiter, Oxford. 

Y. P. S. L. Secretary, Mrs. Conrad Sturges, Henderson. 

There were only two districts lepresented at the Education- 
al Institute in Raleigh, but this was due to the fact that the 
snow made it hard for the members to attend. The mee'.ing was 
most inspiring. 

May we study our book more earnestly than ever before, 
and try to use this knowledge to extend the work of the Church 
in the rural districts. It is our prayer that 1938 may make us 
more "Auxiliary interested"; and in order to be interested we 
must possess knowledge of the Auxiliary and its work — "May 
we pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make 
Him known to all nations as their God and Saviour". 

Beryl M. Flannagan, 
Chairman 



DISTRICT OF WAKE 

The District of Wake held the fall meeting on October 27th 
at Saint Mary's School. The well-beloved Chapel was the meet- 
ing place and proved a drawing card as it was filled to capacity. 

The nine branches all had excellent reports. Outstanding 
among them was that of the Lucy Pittinger Branch of the Gcod 
Shepherd Church, Raleigh, who reported that they no longer 
raised the money they needed but depended entirely on volun- 
tary contributions; that they had met all their obligations in 
this manner and had grown spiritually broader and more in- 
terested. 

All the branches reported Study Classes and more interest 
in them, due in no small measure to the Institute held by the 
Diocesan Educational Secretary at Raleigh. A Bible Class for 
Women and held every Monday morning at Christ Church, Ral- 
eigh reported an attendance of over 100. This class is taught 
by Mrs. Partrick. 

For the Supply Department the District had made 103 gar- 
ments for the Supply Room and in addition each branch had 
contributed toward the other work of the Department. 



48 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 



The interest of all our women continue in the Thompson 
Orphanage and the many adopted sons and daughters have 
their usual fall and winter boxes as well as those on birthdays 
and Christmas. 

Social Service continued to appeal strongly to us all wheth- 
er we work in co-operation with the social agencies or with 
personal contributions to the needy. 

The District, under the leadership of Mrs. Clarkson, slowly 
but steadily increased the United Thank Offering. 

At our meeting we were fortunate in having Bishop Penick 
and our prescient, Mrs. Gordon, with us. Mrs. Gordon gave us 
a report torn Cincinnati colored with her own spiritual con- 
cepticn ol the scenes and brought to us the inspiration and ele- 
vation which she had received. We were also most fortunate 
in having Mrs. Annie Cheshire Tucker who told of her life in 
Shanghai and the work that Saint Luke's Hospital was doing 
there. It was most interesting and we were all anxious to ask 
questions which she graciously answered. Miss Corinna Gant 
also gave a very interesting account of her visit to different 
missions and her other contacts with the Church on her trip 
aiound the world. 

A whole new slate of district officers- were elected with the 
exception of the chairman. With all this new and enthusiastic 
leadership we look forward to a successful new year. 

Sue Dishman Gant, Chairman 



DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The District Secretaries met with the District Chairman in 
May shortly after the Diocesan convention and formulated plans 
for the year. 

The annual meeting was held at St. Matthew's, Hillsboro, 
in October. This was a large meeting attended by eighty-nine 
delegates and by four clergymen. Addresses of deep interest 
were made by Mrs. Annie Cheshire Tucker, on the medical mis- 
sion in China; Mrs. Urban T Holmes on the influence of the 
Woman's Conference at Vade Mecum and by Mrs. J. P. Watters 
on the General Convention. 

Five new District officers were elected at this time. 

Mrs. Gordon closed the meeting with a plea that we learn 
the power of Christ in us, and that we give ourselves for His 
service. 

Reports from the various parishes in the District in giving 
plans for 1938 listed as objectives: larger pledges, a keener in- 
terest in social service and in young peoples' work, a more 
careful preparation for religious education and a blue box in 
use by every member. 

A deepened interest was reported and a hope that we might 
be growing spiritually. 

Bessie Harding Henry, 
Chairman, District of Orange 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 49 

DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

Another year, another opportunity to do those things which 
we know should be done. Another chance to do more for the 
Woman's Auxiliary in extending the work of our Church; an- 
other challenge to reconsecration to give ourselves, our thoughts, 
our prayers, our time, our means, unreservedly to Him. Ecc. 
3:15 ? Forgetting with St. Paul everything which is past and 
stretching forward to what lies in front of us, with our eyes 
fixed on the goal, we push on to secure the prize of God's 
heavenward call in Christ Jesus. Therefore, it is with mingled 
feelings of gratitude, regret and relief that I present, this, my 
last report as chairman. 

I can think of few experiences more beautiful, more enrich- 
ing, than to be your chairman. It has brought me rich bless_ 
ings in my contacts with you. You have co-operated to fill 
every need. I am deeply grateful to you all. There is a regret be- 
cause I shall miss these contacts, but even more because I see 
so much left undone that I had hoped to do; a relief, because 
of the constant pressing demands of my extensive missionary 
program in Rockingham county. 

We were particularly blest in having among us, our Dio- 
cesan president. It has greatly minimized my work, because of 
her personal Religion conferences I discontinued my Regional 
conferences, which was my first move as chairman to stimu- 
late Bible study and a forward movement consciousness. 

I am thankful that up to December '37 there were six new 
branches added. It was my privilege in 1936 to attend Kanuga 
conference and to speak on Auxiliary Day. In '37 I attended 
a Victorious Life conference at Ben Lippen, Kanuga conference 
and the general convention, having been guest speaker at the 
Triennial Breakfas; of the C. P. C, presided over a Community 
program of the World Day of Prayer and in '36 and '37 pie- 
sided over a Good Friday 3 Hour service at a Baptist and Pres- 
byterian church. Quiet Days were observed. 

Spring and Fall meetings held, the smaller branches being 
chosen for these meetings. 

At the '37 Spring meeting a committee was appointed to 
draw up a constitution for the District which was presented and 
adopted at the Fall meeting in Milton. The meeting at Milton 
was the first large Episcopal gathering in Caswell county. The 
District has cause for thanksgiving for the rare and beautiful 
example of its first chairman, Mrs. Dorian Bean, who last year 
was called up for a higher service. 

In closing I want to say how happy I've been as your 
leader and what a privilege to serve with one of God's own 
silent missionaries, Mrs. M. N. Shaw, as my secretary; and my 
consolation as I go out in the fall, will be the thought that I 
can still serve in a helpful capacity as I want the new chairman 
to call upon me constantly and freely. 

Yours for service, 
Lillie H. Hill 
DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

My first year as chairman of Forsyth-Rowan District has 
come to a close and it is with a deep sense of thankfulness that 
I realize that each of our fifteen branches has truly been al- 
ways mindful of the keynote of our 1937 Annual Meeting, 
"Workers together with Him". 



50 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 

We have had two splendid meetings. The Spring Meeting 
was held in Grace Church, Lexington, N. C. Most of the branches 
were represented and we had a large attendance. This was our 
inspirational meeting of the year and we had our President. 
Mrs. Wm. Gordon, with us. She gave us an inspiring address, 
which made us feel all the stronger that we should go forward 
in our work for the Master. 

Preceding our Fall Meeting, a dinner meeting of the Dis- 
trict Officers, was held with Mrs. W. G. Byerly, in Statesville, 
N. C. All officers were present except two and we had a fine 
meeting together, discussing the District work and working out 
more complete plans for each department. We feel that this get- 
together meeting of our officers will go far towards making 
our work more comprehensive. 

The Fall Meeting was held in St. Paul's Church, Winston_ 
Salem, N. C. and we had splendid talks from Mrs. Wm. Gordon, 
Mrs. H. B Hutchison and Mrs. Ross Sigmon on the General 
convention. Especially did the delegates impress on our District 
the deep spirituality of the convention. 

In looking forward to our work in 1938 it is enouraging to 
me as chairman, to note that in all reports from the branches, 
each branch has reported increased interest and gifts and al- 
most all branches have written that they are working towards 
a fuller spiritual life in their branches. 

My program for 1938 is to bring before our District a fuller 
realization that we as individuals make up the District and 
that each woman should realize her responsibilities to the Aux- 
iliary program. Our Work is to make Christ known to all men 
everywhere and as Bishop Creighton says, "This is the begin- 
ning, the glad continuing, and the end of every truly christian 
life. 

Respectively submitted, 

Ruth W. Woodward, 
Chairman Forsyth-Rowan District 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The past year's work has been characterized by a note of 
progress. Intelligent interpretation of Auxiliary work in its va- 
rious departments has been done by the District Secretaries be- 
fore many of the branches. 

This district is particularly fortunate in having a "mission- 
ary minded" Prayer Partner Secretary, Mrs. A. F. Dichten- 
mueller, who has concentrated upon the task of making us 
aware of our spiritual and moral support of those heroic wo- 
men who represent us in the field. Through her efforts Deacon- 
ess Sime has become real and personal. Her work, her surround- 
ings, and lonely isolation have been faithfully depicted, and we 
feel her acute need of our prayers and encouragement. In ad- 
dition to numerous letters and cards we have given her several 
personal gifts, including a radio. 

The Educational secretary, Mrs. Baxter Moore, has outlined 
our missionary projects in a vivid and graphic manner, and has 
done much to stimulate our interest in the Church program. 

The Supply Department has also been in capable hands, 
and its aims and purpose made clear through the diligent and 
untiring efforts of Mrs. George Mitchell. Her appearance before 
the branches on behalf of the Box Work has borne fruit. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 51 



We were privileged to hear Bishop Shirley Nichols of Japan 
give us first hand reports of our work in the Orient. Miss Mary 
Wood McKenzie of Cape Mount, Liberia, and the Rev. Hector 
Thompson of Wyoming, also spoke in the interest of their work. 

The spring meeting was held at St. Paul's Church, Monroe. 
Stereotyped reports were dispensed with and short inspirational 
talks made on departmental Auxiliary work. Mrs. R. L. Bern- 
hardt, District Recruiting Secretary of Forsyth_Rowan, was the 
guest speaker. She emphasized the methods used in her dis- 
trict which has made it outstanding in the recruiting field. 

The fall meeting was held at St. Martin's Church, Char- 
lotte, with a record attendance. Four new officers were elected: 
Chairman, Mrs. E. J. Wanamaker, Jr.; Vice-President and Sup- 
ply Secretary, Mrs. Everett Croxton; United Bank Offering 
Treasurer: Mrs. Thos. B. Longhurst; Educational Secretary, Mrs. 
F. B. Rupert. The high-light of the meeting was the announce- 
ment that Miss Noreen Quern of St. Peter's Church, Charlotte, 
had offered herself for the mission field. She was accepted and 
assigned to the Cathedral School at Havana, Cuba, reporting for 
duty early in September. The Rev. John Long Jackson, speak- 
ing for the Executive Board of the Thompson Orphanage, asked 
that a District Committee be appointed to do special work at 
the Orphanage. Mrs. R. W. Ballard was asked to organize and 
convene the committee. A distinct challenge to the diocese was 
Mr. Jackson's appeal for missionary minded Church women to 
fill such vacancies as occur in the Thompson Orphanage staff 
of matrons. Mrs. Ross Sigmcn was the principal speaker, and 
brought us first hand news of the General Convention. She paid 
deserved tribute to Miss Emma Hall, whose name was present- 
ed at the convention for membership on the National Council; 
and to Mrs. William Gordon, our President, who had a con- 
spicuous part in the services. 

The retiring Chairman feels that the District Auxiliary, if 
properly used, can render valuable service in coordinating dio- 
cesan and parish work. District meetings are in reality "mina- 
ture Annual Meetings" and afford many women a glimpse of 
work in the broader field which might otherwise be denied them. 

Corinne C. Ballard, 
District Chariman 



DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

In looking back through the past year it is gratifying to 
report that the Richmond District shows a full Auxiliary pro- 
gram. 

The regular spring meeting was held at The Church of The 
Messiah, in Rockingham. The officers made encouraging re_ 
ports of the work done in their respective departments. Out- 
standing in the District is the work being done among the 
young people. An active Junior Choir and a Service League 
have been organized in Wadesboro. Rockingham has also or • 
ganized a Service League. Church Schools are unusually ac- 
tive in all branches, Hamlet reporting about one hundred per 
cent in attendance. A Little Helpers League has also been or- 
ganized here. 



52 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 

Among the encouraging reports offered at this meeting was 
the concrete work accomplished following up the Lenten study. 
Wadesboro helped to buy an Encyclopedia, a Standard diction- 
ary, and six other good books for the negro schools. The South- 
ern Pines branch founded a scholarship at the Sedalia School, 
equipped a play ground at a colored school, and assisted in 
holding a clinic. 

The fall meeting convened in Wadesboro, at Calvary Church 
with a splendid attendance. At this time, District Secretaries 
gave a full outline of their work for the ensuing year. 

It was both a privilege and an inspiration to have Mrs. Gor- 
don and Miss Cutler address the District on this occasion. 

Much interest is being manifested in Raligious Education. 
All branches have been very active in meeting the needs for 
Social Service. Our United Thank Offering again shows an in- 
crease over previous years, A number cf the branches show an 
increase in membership and better attendance, botn or which 
point to a deepened interest in the work. 

Margaret Hudnell, 
Chairman of Richmond District 



NEGRO DISTRICT 

The work done by the Woman's Auxiliary of the Negro 
District for the year of 1937 has been encouraging. 

Two meetings were held for the year. The Spring meeting 
was held at the Church of The Resurrection, Henderson, N. C. 
The keynote for this meeting was: "Be ye doers of the word 
and not hearers only". We tried to emphasize the idea of the 
necessity cf being "doers of the word" to accomplish our 
aims. 

There was one important fact brought out in the reports 
from the Auxiliaries and that was: the branch reports showed 
that the workers have a better understanding of the work and 
purpose of the Auxiliary. A lack of this knowledge has been 
a handicap to some, I know. 

One of the high points of interest of the program for the 
day was a discussion led by Mrs. William J. Gordon. Diocesan 
president. The topic was "Enlisting Young People for Service". 
Many important ideas were brought out in the discussion. A 
need of trained leaders and keeping young people interested in 
church were emphasized. 

The District United Thank Offering Custodian reported 
S86.54 at this meeting. 

The District Educational Secretary made an interesting re- 
port, urging first that we educate ourselves religiously and then 
help others. She gave a list of books to be studied in the Aux- 
iliaries. 

The meeting was brought to a close by an address by 
Bishop Penick. We appreciate the words of encouragement and 
praise coming from him of the work. 

The autumn meeting was held at St. Ambrose Church, 
Raleigh, N. C. 

The chairman opened the meeting by remarks based on the 
hymn 'In the Vineyard of Our Father". The idea brought out 
was that each branch, each diocese and all the world is the 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 53 

vineyard and we as members of the Auxiliary are the gleaners 
with daily work to do. 

The reports from the branches were encouraging as they 
showed more wcrk being covered by the different secretaries of 
the Auxiliaries. 

The program for the year was outlined by Mrs. William 
L. Long, Diocesan Educational Secretary. 

The United Thank offering Custodian reported $53.04. 

Bishop Penick and Mrs. William J. Gordon reviewed the 
General Convention. They were very enthusiastic in their re- 
marks. 

Ten branches were represented at this meeting. Our appeal 
goes out to those net present that they may make every effort 
possible to be with us at the Spring meeting at Saint Titus 
Church, Durham, N. C. in May. 

We are looking forward and not backward for 1938 and 
I am urging every "Faithful Few" to help others see the ne- 
cessity of organized christian workers to hold our Auxiliaries 
and churches together. 

Helena Harris, District Chairman, 
Littleton, N. C. 



COMMITTEE REPORTS 

REPORT OF RECRUITING SECRETARY 

Letters, in place of the usual questionnaires, have been a 
real jcy to the Secretary. Statistics in recruiting omit the best 
work, while letters about the work are most encouraging. But 
V/HY dees Forsyth-Rowan continue to be the only district to 
report 100%? The enthusiasm of Mrs. Bernhardt is reflected in 
every branch letter. 

At last we all know recruiting is adding and restoring to 
Holy Church. We used to think it meant only to get a recruit 
for the ministry, preferably for foreign missions. That was a 
fairly discouraging job for 95 f ,'< of our branches. Now we know 
the full meaning of recruiting for God, and that there is work 
for the largest and smallest branches. 

Fcr 1938 let us consider two special works of recruiting. 

Every year Youth, when High School graduation is .lust 
ahead, asks: "What will be my vocation" (only Youth says, 
NOW WHAT?). Then we, parents, and interested friends gravely 
consider, engineering? law? teaching? Right here is a place to 
remind Youth that Mother Church has wonderful opportunities 
for Youth; should not these be as carefully considered as en- 
gineering? Surely no young man or woman will begin to study 
for a life work without carefully_considering the work most 
appealing to him and her. Let all the Church works be included 
in the careful considering: the priesthood, the Church Army, 
education, Christian social service medical missionary, monastic 
life, — so many opportunities that should be studied and consid- 
eration along with law and agriculture. Here is a recruiting work 
needed in every branch in our Diocese. 

The study classes this year will point the way for definite 
and personal recruiting work right at home, and next door. The 
City Churches, will learn of their dependence upon the Country 



54 FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 



Churches, and will gladly recruit from their membership to sup- 
ply leadership for the surrounding rural churches, Sunday 
schools and auxiliaries. The Rural Churches will continue to 
teach and make gcod Churchmen who all too soon must go to 
the city to work, and they become loyal workers in the City 
Church. There is no limit to the recruiting we can learn about 
thru the study of Rural Churches. Let us grasp those opportun- 
ities and push forward. With one person in every branch re- 
sponsible for the carrying out of this work, with the assistance 
of your Rector and other Auxiliary members, we need not ques- 
tion results. With God as your guide and strength, you will 
want to write to your district secretary next November, and 
express your gratitude for the privilege of being recruiting sec- 
retary in your branch. 

Susan Chase Robinson 



REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF THE COMMITTEE ON 

YOUNG PEOPLES WORK 

I The Chairman of the Committee on Young People's Work 
feels encouraged this year for the following reasons: 

1. All District Secretaries are truly active and anxious to 
further the work of our young people in every way 
possible. 

2. We are beginning to understand now that young peo- 
ple's work is concerned with all of our youth from the 
youngest baby to adulthood, and not with Young Peo- 
ple's Service League alone. 

3. More of our Auxiliary women are teaching in the 
Church Schools, and serving as counsellors for the 
Service League 

4. The work among our isolated children and young peo- 
ple is going forward. There are twenty-two members 
of the Sunday school class by mail who have sent in 
their work regularly this year. 

5. There seems to be an awakening of interest in really 
learning to meet the needs of our youth, helping them 
to live joyful Christian lives as they develop toward 
adulthood, and to take their places in Christ's body the 
Church. 

II Some of our greatest needs as revealed through a recent 
questionnaire sent out by the District Secretaries: 

1. More active Little Helper's Workers in the Parishes and 
Missions. If your Church does not have this most im- 
portant work write to Mrs. T. P. Thomas, Wilson, N. C. y 
and ask for help in getting it started. 

2. A committee on Christian education in every Parish 
and Mission to plan for the Christian nurture of every 
member of the Parish. No Minister can do the whole job 
alone. 

3. More teacher training through — 

(a) attending Summer Conferences. 

(b) taking correspondence courses. 

(c) having classes for parents and teachers in the parish. 

4. More Junior Choirs where children learn to worship 
through really participating in the service. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 55 

5. More Vacation Bible Schools and Children's Missions. 

6. More adequate missionary education. 

7. More and better parish libraries. 

8. More thought given to how the children and young peo- 
ple can have a real part in the work of the parish, also 
more effort made to really guide our youth in wor- 
ship, in thinking, in gaining the most helpful informa- 
tion, and in service. 

If your Diocesan Director of Religious Education can be of 
any service to you in meeting any of these needs write to her 
at 928 Walker Ave., Greensboro, N. C. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Maude Cutler 



REPORT OF PRAYER PARTNERSHIP PLAN 

There have been no changes in the Diocesan Prayer Part- 
nership since the 1937 convention met in April. 

Miss Anne Groff of St. Luke's Hospital, Shanghai, Prayer 
Partner for the District of Guilford, is in this country on fur_ 
lough. 

Will each branch please be sure that it has an active and 
interested Prayer Partner correspondent, and report any new 
one to your district correspondent. 

Your Diocesan correspondent is anxious to be of any pos- 
sible service. 

Faithfully, 
(Mrs. F. B.) Rebecca W. Drane 



REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF COMMITTEE ON 
WORK WITH THE ISOLATED 

Letters have been sent to every branch in the Diocese giv- 
ing a suggested plan of Work with the Isolated. If you would 
send in to the Chairman of this Committee an account of your 
efforts and accomplishments in this field, it would serve as an 
inspiration and a challenge to other branches. I have the names 
of a few isolated people in the Diocese who are eager for con- 
tact with the life of the church — they would be grateful for 
letters, church papers, forward movement pamphlets and books. 
Most of these people are isolated by invalidism. There are 
others who ask only for an opportunity to share in the work 
of the auxiliary, one member who speaks of herself as isolated 
writes cheering letters to other shut-ins. 

As you watch the crowd of people on the streets of your 
town Saturday afternoons, do you not wonder how many are 
touched by the life of the church — how many know fellowship 
in the love of Christ with others who worship and serve Him. 
If we think with an understanding heart we know that people 
are not always isolated by distance or by invalidism. In our 
s udy book we read: "Recent studies of religious conditions in 
our rural communities reveal some alarming facts. More than 
ten thousand of these communities are without a Sunday school; 
thirty thousand rural hamlets are without spiritual guidance 
or teaching by persons trained to impart religious instruction. 
Thus about thirteen millions of children and young people of 
school age receive no Christian instruction. These facts should 



5G FIFTY-SIXTH ANNUAL REPORT 

stir the church to an enlarged sense of responsibility for the 
spiritual care of the nation's children." 

The Woman's Auxiliary could do no greater service than 
for its members to go out into isolated communities where 
there is no church and start Sunday schools for children and 
other people. Most glorious results have come from such efforts 
in our Diocese in the past. Sunday Schools that started in rural 
or factory communities with two or three faithful teachers, have 
developed into flourishing missions that have sent priests and 
missionaries out to spread the gospel. Surely work that bears 
such fruit and is so clearly the Master's business demands our 
mest faithful and zealous labor.

DIOCESE OR NORTH CAROLINA 

REPORT OF THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 
FOR THE YEAR 1937 

At the annual meeting of the Auxiliary last year in Ral- 
eigh I recall hearing Mrs. Grafton Burke of Alaska tell cf one 
man who took some provisions from his sled to make room for 
reading matter sent by the Church Periodical Club. Ke must 
have felt as the Psalmist when he said, "Thy word is a lantern 
unto my feet and a light unto my path". That incident is the 
embodiment of the work done by this organization — supplying 
reading material to those who need it. 

The report of the seventeen parish branches active in this 
work are very gratifying to me. One branch reports having tak- 
en out a magazine subscription for their prayer partner — an ex- 
cellent idea. Many others are regularly sending magazines to 
many parts of the country. Reading matter has been sent to 
Rosebud mission in Bishop Robert's diocese of South Dakota and 
to St. Mark's mission in Nenana, Alaska. In our own diocese 
over thirty institutions have benefited by our interest, among 
them being; — orphanages, rural schools, jails, prison camps, hos- 
pitals and CC.C. camps. 



It is my earnest wish that more branches of this work may 
be established throughout the diocese. Many do not understand 
just what the Church Periodical Club is. I feel this is due to 
my lack of effort and not to your lack of interest. Please let 
me help you know it better. 

May I submit the following statistical report. 

Magazines regularly sent 33 

Number of donors 15 

Bibles, hymnals, prayer books 148 

Other books 225 

Leaflets 810 

Magazines in quantity 32,750 

Cards of all kinds 2,040 

Scrap books and games 162

LEGISLATIVE PLATFORM— WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

We stand for sufficient appropriations by the State to take 

proper care of the unfortunate members of society such as 

the tubercular, the insane, the feeble minded and prisoners. 

We favor generous appropriations for public health work 

including prevention of disease. 

We favor establishing more and better equipped reform 

schools for the care of youthful offenders. 

We ask for legislation providing more efficient enforcement 

of the law requiring compulsory attendance of children at 

school. 

We oppose any legislation tending to liberalize further the 

divorce laws of North Carolina.

Representative on Legislative Council

FOREWORD 



Our Lord's words "In the world ye shall have tribulation" 
seem peculiarly applicable to the present situation. Good causes 
are encountering stormy weather. While this fact is obvious, 
yet those who are enlisted under the banner of the Cross should 
not let discouragement weaken their efforts nor their faith in 
the victory of God's Kingdom. These words of Christ are imme- 
diately followed by the declaration "Be of good cheer, I have 
overcome the world". He spoke those words when the shadow 
of the cross was upon Him, but He saw in the cross not only 
suffering but victory through suffering — Shall not we, His fol- 
lowers, not only accept with resignation the tribulations of our 
time, but accept them also with the faith that tribulation when 
accepted as Christ accepted the cross is converted by God into 
the means by which His saving purpose is carried forward to 
victory. Let us therefore interpret the difficulties of our age as 
God's order to go forward, for "if we suffer with Christ, we 
shall also reign with Him". 



Please use this message from the Presiding Bishop as a 
Meditation at an Auxiliary meeting.

Noonday Prayer for Missions 

Blessed Saviour, Who at this hour didst hang upon the 
Cross, stretching forth Thy loving arms, grant that all mankind 
may look unto Thee, and be saved; through Thy Merits and 
mercies, Who livest and reignest with the Father and the Holy 
Ghost, ever One God, world without end. Amen.

Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, bless, we pray Thee, 
our work for the extension of Thy Kingdom, and make us so

we may pray fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to 
make Him known to all Nations as their God and Saviour. We 
ask this for His dear sake. Amen. 

For the Presence of Christ 

O living Christ, make us conscious now of Thy healing near- 
ness. Touch our eyes that we may see Thee; open our ears that 
we may hear Thy voice; enter our hearts that we may know Thy 
love. Overshadow our souls and bodies with Thy presence, that 
we may partake of Thy strength, Thy love, and Thy healing life.

unto the uttermost parts of the earth in answer to Thy call.

Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send 
Thy blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy 
name. Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and 
matrons of this home, that they may faithfully discharge the 
duties committed to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow 
in grace and earnestness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, 
enlighten their minds, purify their hearts and sanctify their 
wills. Bless all who have contributed to this institution, and

Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

God, world without end. Amen. 

For Religious Education

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern 
life, and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and 
unity, making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou 
wiliest, Who dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, 
the light and joy of the citizens of that holy land. Amen. 
The Forward Movement 

We pray Thee, O God, for Thy Blessing upon the Forward 
Movement of Thy Church. Use it, we beseech Thee, to open our 
eyes to the needs of men for the Gospel of Christ, and to the 
opportunities that lie before the Church to extend His Kingdom. 
Stir up, O Lord, the wills cf all Thy people to share in this 
work with gladness of heart and self-sacrificing spirit. Let not 
our purpose slack, but let the kingdoms of this world become 
the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ. Amen. 
For Christian Unity 

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst pray for Thy disciples that 
they might be one even as Thou art one with the Father; draw 
us to Thyself, that in common love and obedience to Thee, we may 
be united to one another in the fellowship of the one Spirit, that 
the world may believe Thou art Lord, to the glory of God the 
Father. Amen. 

For the Outcome of the War in China 

Lord of the Universe, Maker of the riches of this beautiful 
earth for which Thy children fight and destroy one another, we 
would join our prayers to the mighty supplication of Thy Son 
for the coming of Thy Kingdom. May the Japanese invasion of 
China meet with whatever result will be for the best good of 
both nations in that great future which only Thou canst see. 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Use Before and at the Time of the Election cf Officers . 

O Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can 
enable us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the 
dignity of our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as 
our leaders those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service; 
To those so chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of 
their office, and to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the 
discharge of every duty, to do all to the glory of God, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Prayer Partner 

"Almighty God, Who didst call holy women to be helpers 
and workers in Thy service: bless we pray Thee Thy servant, 
. . . and prosper her in the work to which Thou has called her. 
Grant her sufficient wisdom for every task, Thy gracious help 
in time of trouble, the sense of Thy presence in loneliness and

the power to accomplish whatever has been begun in Thy name 
and for Thy glory through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord." 
Amen. 

Thanksgiving; 

Almighty God, Whose compassions fail not, and Whose lov- 
ing kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee 
humble thanks for all the great things Thou hast done and are 
doing for the children of men; for the opening of heathen lands 
to the light of Thy truth; for making paths in the deep waters 
and highways in the desert; for knitting nation to nation in the 
bond of fellowship, and for the planting of Thy Church in all 
the earth. O merciful Father, in whom the whole family in 
heaven and earth is named, fill full our hearts with grateful 
love for this Thy goodness, granting grace henceforth to serve 
Thee better and more perfectly to know Thee; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering: 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth 
more laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special 
grace for every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, 
and draw us into closer friendship with them. Dispose the 
hearts of all women everywhere to give gladly as Thou has giv- 
en to them. Accept from grateful hearts our United Thank Of- 
fering of prayer and gifts and joyful service; and bless it to 
the coming of Thy kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

The Re -dedication 

Realizing that only through personal dedication to Jesus 
Christ, our Lord, can we hope to bring to fruition our human 
endeavors, we re-dedicate ourselves to the service of our Lord 
Jesus Christ, to making the strength of our deeds the measure 
of our Faith; to a sincere and simple effort in our daily living 
to follow with humility the example of our Saviour. 

A Closing Prayer 

We commend to Thy mercy, O heavenly Father, all that we 
have thought, and said, and done this day, beseeching Thee to 
pardon all that has been amiss in us, and to accept for Thy 
glory all that has been done in accordance with thy holy will; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

This prayer was used daily at the Evening Devo- 
tions by the delegates to the Second World Confer- 
ence on Faith and Order, Edinburgh, Scotland, 1937. 
Also used at the Triennial Meeting in Cincinnati, Oc- 
tober, 1937.

50 years ago, in the Church of the Holy Communion, New York 
City. 

'"Holy off'rings, rich and rare, 
Offerings of praise and prayer. 
On His altar laid, we leave them: 
Christ, present them! God, receive them!" 



16 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



THE SPIRIT 

of 
The United Thank Offering 

UNITED: Shared by Churchwomen everywhere, from 
cities, villages and farms; from North, South, 
East and West ; of many races and climes. 
A Corporate Act of Worship through prayer and 
gifts and joyful service. 

THANK: A spiritual and material expression of 
thanksgiving to God. 

THANKS to God for the many blessings of our 
daily lives. 

THANKS to Christ for His Gospel of Love and 
the brotherhood of man, and for the assurance 
that as we minister to our brothers in need we 
minister to Him. 

THANKS to the Holy Spirit, that by His enlight- 
enment we have glimpses of Christ's vision and 
perceive that by our prayers we can bring our 
brothers to Christ and into His Kingdom of Love. 

OFFERING: A Gift of Love! 

"We give Thee but Thine own, 
Whate'er the gift may be: 
All that we have is Thine alone, 
A trust, O Lord, from Thee."

THE FRUIT 

of 
The United Thank Offering 

Women workers are trained, equipped and sent to 
ALL parts of the world to carry on Christ's threefold 
Mission — 

PREACHING— TEACHING— HEALING 
More than 400 women missionaries have been sent 
out and supported by the United Thank Offering. 

A Trust Fund cares for them when they become 
sick or unable to carry on. 

The Ida Soule Pension Fund cares for them when 
their active ministry is over. 



There is a magic power that transforms the pray- 
ers of thanksgiving into coins, the coins into spiritual 
power, the spiritual power into redeemed souls. 

United Thank Offering missionaries carry, for 
YOU, gentleness and kindness to the lowly, cheer and 
sympathy to the lonely, courage and help to the isolat- 
ed, and love and care to the sick and afflicted, and 
light to those in darkness. 

The Mission Field of the Church is served in count- 
less ways by these devoted women and they carry the 
Gospel of Christ to all the world.

EVENING SERVICE 

The evening service was held in the Chapel of the 
Cross when the Rt. Rev. Henry St. George Tucker, 
Presiding Bishop, addressed the Convention. Using 
Act. 1:8 as a text, the Bishop first reminded us that 
the Kingdom is not merely for Israel or any other na- 
tion but Christ's emphasis was on the uttermost parts 
of the earth and whether we wish it or not, we are all 
foreign missionaries, in that our influence is felt all 
over the world. His second point was that the power 
of God in the individual life is the means by which 
the Kingdom shall be built. He closed by stating that 
if we are going to present Jesus Christ as the Saviour 
of the world, we must do it by demonstrating in our 
own lives that Christ is enabling us to meet our own 
problems. His address was broadcast over WDNC 
and picked up by WPTF in Raleigh.

ing be postponed until later in the first session, to insure a full 
response.

sible their qualification for the Honor Roll. 

Be it also resolved: That the branch secretaries be more 
diligent in returning their reports to the same end. 

5. Be it resolved: That delegates arrive on time and register 
promptly, saving social greetings until adjournment of the

6. Be it resolved: That we thank Mrs. Easley, our retiring 
Secretary for her three years of devoted and expert service, and 
be it further resolved: That Mrs. Gordon, our retiring President, 
be thanked by the Auxiliary of the Diocese to the best of our 
ability for her inspired leadership in the past three years, for 
her tireless activity and wonderful accomplishments as our head, 
and above all, for her blessed influence upon every woman who 
has heard and known her and the radiant example she set us 
ol a Christ-like life. 



28 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

The following resolution was passed by the Execu- 
tive Board and also presented to the Convention: 

Whereas the members of the Jewish faith are undergoing 
at present persecutions of an extreme nature, 

And whereas, our Christian regard for our fellowman is 
shocked at this unbelievable cruelty, Be it resolved that our 
sympathy be expressed for our Jewish brethren, 

And be it further resolved that we send a tangible expres- 
sion of our sympathy to the Jewish Relief Fund. 

Syd Alexander brought a word of greeting from 
the Young People's Service League. He thanked the 
women of the Auxiliary for the aid given the League, 
especially in the restoration of the Chapel at Vade 
Mecum. 

The Rt. Rev. Henry St. George Tucker, Presiding 
Bishop, addressed the Convention informally on Mis- 
sions. He outlined the problems which confront the 
Church as to Domestic and Foreign Missions stating 
that to make our Foreign Missionary work more ef- 
fective, we must make our Diocesan work more ef- 
fective. Bishop Tucker closed with an appeal for a 
Christian service which involves two kinds of sacrifice 
— a sacrifice with a quality which shall make the 
sacrifice more efficacious and a sacrifice which is un- 
limited. 

Reports on Diocesan Objectives followed. 

Miss Kate Spruill, Alumnae Secretary, presented 
St. Mary's School. She gave an encouraging report of

plans be made early for attendance at the Conferences 
and Camps. 

Mrs. Gordon announced that Miss Maude Cutler

ference at Vade Mecum. 

Mrs. Gordon reported that a gift from the Auxil-

Adult Conference and urged the importance of at- 
tending.

in the children there. 

Miss Margaret Williams, Student Secretary at St. 
Mary's House, Greensboro, presented two students

Mary's House. Miss Edith Turner had as her subject, 
"What the Student does in the Work of the Church" 
and Miss Mary Catherine McLaughlin used as her sub- 
ject, "What the Church Does for the Student." 

Miss Bessie Blacknall, who is a missionary from 
this Diocese, stationed at St. Mark's Mission, Nenana, 
Alaska, brought a message to the Convention. She de- 
scribed the physical conditions in Alaska and gave a 
vivid picture of life at the mission, making reference 
to the value of the root cellar which was given by 
the Auxiliary. 

Mrs. Francis Clarkson, Chairman of Committee of 
Findings presented the following report: 

REPORT OF FINDINGS COMMITTEE 

1. That in the spirit of this Convention has been manifested 
an earnest desire to recognize our responsibility as individual 
Christians and as a group of women carrying the message of 
Christ to those who do not know Him. 

2. That our President's message reported to us the wistful- 
ness for deeper spiritual understanding on the part of the 
branches and urged us to a conception of Auxiliary work high- 
er than mere organization, to a zeal that would be satisfied with 
nothing less than seeking God, and when we should find Him, 
presenting Him with ourselves and our dearest possessions. 

3. That the reports of the diocesan officers and committee 
chairmen presented a challenge not merely to greater and broad- 
er fields of service but to a soul searching of ourselves, of the 
spirit of our work, and of our own lives as examples of Chris- 
tian living. 

4. That from Canon Howitt's meditation we gained a 
clearer conception of the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that 
to receive it, we must accept it, and that through His grace alone 
can our work be accomplished. 

5. That the strength of Miss Monteiro's Christian conviction 
and the courage and perseverance of the missionaries in China 
in the face of untold dangers made us feel a great shame for 
our luke warm Christianity and our attitude of seeming indiffer- 
ence. ' ". "' 

6. That Bishop Tucker clearly and forcibly brought to us 
the message of Christ to the early disciples — that we are His 
witnesses throughout the world and that His power works 
through us to draw all men to Him. 

7. That the encouraging report of the Negro district de- 
serves a real and active interest on the part of us alL 



30 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

8. That Bishop Tucker presented to us a vivid picture of the 
work of the Church and particularly in Japan, showing the 
glorious share that we may have through real sacrifice in this 
work. 

9. That we should feel encouraged over the progress our 
diocesan objectives are making toward their goals. 

10. That the graciousness of Miss Bessie Blacknall made 
us glow with pride for our share in the work in Alaska and 
with pride in our missionary representatives and the work they 
are doing in that far northern country. 

A message of greeting was read from Bishop Pen- 
ick, who was unable to attend due to illness. 

The Courtesy Committee made the following re- 
port: 

We, the members of the courtesy commit' ee, in the name of 
all who have attended this inspiring and enlightening conven- 
tion, wish to express our deep appreciation for the gracious 
hospitality which has made this meeting possible. In addition to 
the splendid program, it has been most uplifting to meet in the 
beautiful Chapel of the Cross, one of our oldest and most his- 
torical parishes in the South, situated in the heart of culture 
and learning. Especially are we grateful to the rector, the mem- 
bers of the hostess branch of the Auxiliary, and the entire mem- 
bership cf this Church. 

To Miss Monteiro and to our own Miss Bessie Blacknall, 
native of this Diocese, for their moving and informative ac- 
counts of the Church at work in China and Alaska; to Canon 
Howitt for his devotional and instructive meditation, our sincere 
thanks. 

To Bishop Tucker for presenting the modern missionary 
situation so clearly and for making us keenly aware of our per- 
sonal responsibility in the shpread of Christ's Kingdom we are 
deeply grateful. 

To Mrs. Gordon for her zealous and consecrated leader- 
ship not only during this meeting but throughout her term of 
cffice, our heartfelt thanks. 

We shall return to our homes with renewed fervor and 
faith that our undertakings in the cause of Christ may bear fruit, 
abundantly.

EXTRACTS FROM THE NORTH CAROLINA CHURCHMAN 
CONCERNING THE ANNUAL MEETING 1939 

PRESIDING BISHOP, SPEAKERS FROM CANADA, ALASKA 

AND CHINA, INSPIRE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY ANNUAL 

MEETING IN CHAPEL HILL 



Miss Margaret Monteiro of the Diocese of Anking, China, in 
her vivid presentation of church work in China charged that 
newspaper atrocity slories emanating from the war zones are 
not only true, but if anything, under-statements of actual condi- 
tions. Miss Monteiro based her remarks upon 18 years' residence 
in the Orient, and upon reliable messages she has received from 
old friends in China since leaving en furlough. She emphasized 
the dangers and damages suffered by Chinese girls and women 
at the hands of Japanese soldiers. 

The missionary appealingly depicted present conditions in 
her field, declaring that refugees were being sheltered in coal 
sheds, tool houses, sleeping on dining tables, and in short, res- 
cued and housed in every conceivable way by Christian work- 
ers. Of 60 babies, wounded and sick and hungry, 47 were saved 
by heroic efforts at one refugee center. Faced with the appalling 
task of caring for 500 to 1,000 homeless Chinese in each make- 
shift station, cne missionary's wife was heard to say longingly: 
"I wish this war would stop because I know I won't see my 
husband until it does. He goes wherever the war goes." Nanking, 
a city of 1,000,000 souls, today is a hull of its former self, and 
a scant 250,000 people remain within its confines. Miss Monteiro 
said Americans could and shculd do more to care for these 
stricken Orientals, many of them church folk, and that we 
should do all possible to promote legislation prohibiting export 
of scrap-iron and all war material. 

Need for new workers in the mission fields was indicated 
by Miss Monteiro as she cited one group of 45 million Chinese 
residing in an area in which there is now only one American 
priest. (This remark was all the more significant in view of 
National Council's recent announcement that the outlook for 
1939 may cause further reductions in personnel and salaries of 
missionaries.) 

The Presiding Bishop cf the Church in the United States, 
Eishop Tucker, of Virginia, broadcast on Thursday night through 
the courtesy of WDNC, Durham, and WPTF, Raleigh. He spoke 
on the modern incentive to do more and better missionary work, 
s uggesting that nationalism in its worst form, and personal self- 
i shness are the great stumbling blocks in the way of spread- 
ing the Gospel. He challenged his hearers to examine their own 
lives as to sincere desire to evangelize the world. Friday morn- 
ing he made an informal address to the Auxiliary on the cur- 
rent reorganization being undertaken by National Council. He 
pointed out in both speeches, as did Miss Monteiro, that the war 
in China and Japan is paving the way for unlimited op- 
portunities for mission work when the war ceases. 



FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



An 80-year-old canon of a Canadian cathedral, the Rev. 
F. E. Howitt, who belied his age in agility of thought and phy- 
sical appearance, addressed a very attentive congregation on 
"The Grace of Our Lord Jesus Christ." Grace saves man, grace 
sanctifies man, and grace satisfies man, he said. He defined grace, 
among other definitions, as "The undeserved, unmerited favor of 
God." His wise and illuminating exposition was most profitable 
to all who heard it. 

Miss Bessie Blacknall, native North Carolinian now stationed 
at St. Mark's School, Nenana, Alaska, made brief remarks of in- 
formal nature, describing her work with the forty boys and girls 
who live in the school. She said she personally dreaded the 
darkness rather than the cold of her adopted land. Alaskans 
have only 3 months of full daylight. Snow melts only in April, 
and flowers appear in May for a brief duration. Miss Blacknall 
told of the education of her charges, and said that many who 
have graduated are now reputable citizens in their respective 
communities. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 33 



THE PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS TO THE 
CONVENTION OF 1939 

Members of the Woman's Auxiliary and Visitors: 

A study of the reports of last year gives us much 
to be thankful for and offers to us a real challenge. 
Our financial gifts have been generous, there is an 
increasing effort for more systematic programs, the 
work of Christian Social Service has been definite 
and constructive, and I perceive beneath it all a wist- 
ful eagerness for a greater reality of the life of the 
Spirit. 

Your president reports among her activities at- 
tendance at 19 branch meetings, 11 District meetings, 
12 committee meetings, and she had part on the pro- 
gram of the Provincial meeting; she has led eight 
Quiet Days, spoken five times at St. Mary's School, 
made the twilight talks at the Vade Mecum Confer- 
ence, given five meditations during a Mission at the 
Good Shepherd Church, Raleigh and made a report 
to the Diocesan Convention. She has also made Aux- 
iliary addresses in the Diocese of Southwest Virginia, 
of Tennessee, of Atlanta, and of East Carolina and 
served on the faculty of the Kanuga Adult Confer- 
ence. 

We are met together in critical times, when truly 
"men's hearts are failing them for fear and for look- 
ing after those things which are coming on the earth". 
We face the amazing fact of the power of Satan ac- 
tive through the life of one man, of certain individ- 
uals. Insecurity is so great that it is closely akin to 
despair. But the Church has another message. I think 
it is not by chance that we are meeting in the Epiph- 
any season. From the clouds of darkness around us, 
we lift our eyes to an old, yet ever new vision, a 
vision of Kings of the East, wise in that they left 
everything to find the Christ, traveling over a track- 
less desert, not dismayed by the wastes of sand but 
with their eyes upon a star, reaching their journey's 
end in the presence of a young Child whom they wor- 



34 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

shipped and then they opened their treasures and pre- 
sented unto Him gifts; gold and frankincense and 
myrrh. Now, these things "are written for our ad- 
monition". I do believe that if throughout this year, 
we should give the first place at all our Auxiliary 
meetings and in all our Auxiliary work, to worship, 
that we should come to its close with the sense of its 
having been the most blessed and fruitful year we 
have ever served. Then we too, would open our treas- 
ures and make our gifts of gold — gold which is so 
sorely needed in the extension of the Kingdom and 
we should offer our greater treasures — our sons and 
daughters — for the service of the King in this day 
of opportunity. We would offer Him the frankincense 
of unquestioning faith that "with Him nothing is im- 
possible" and we should lay at His feet the costly 
myrrh of personal discipleship. Triumphant over evil 
will be the power of God as He expresses Himself 
through the lives of His servants. Tremendous pos- 
sibilities are before us in this new year. Ours should 
be the prayer which has come to us out of China: 
"Lord, grant us miracles — miracles such as are within 
Thy will to give". 



Three years ago I accepted your gift to me of 
this privilege of service in the words of St. Patrick, 

"I bind unto myself today 

The strong arm of the Trinity". 

With such unlimited resources, how small has been 
the use of them ! There is a story that a certain monk 
of old, in his longing to present Christ, fashioned a 
crucifix. The result was very crude, but while he 
slept, an angel made of it a thing of beauty. May the 
Holy Spirit take the work of the past three years and 
so purify and ennoble it, that it may be acceptable 
unto Him Whom together we have served.

36 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

REPORT OF SUPPLY SECRETARY FOR 1938 

First, I want to thank everybody connected with the Sup- 
ply Department for their splendid co-operation and patience 
with their Secretary during 1938. If I have been apparently 
negligent in answering their letters it was due to circumstances 
that are too numerous to go into at this time and not due to 
iackof interest. 

The work has been excellently done throughout the Diocese. 
We have filled our allotments for the year, and judging from 
the Pledge Cards that have been sent in our work during 1939 
will exceed by far that of 1938. 

Several Districts want to change their sewing assignments. 
This will be done as soon as I can check over the Pledge Cards 
and see just what each Parish has obligated itself to do. 

In addition to boxes of clothing, both new and second hand, 
that have been sent to Missions, we sent two personal Christ- 
mas bcxes to Missionaries, and a check to a Missionary in Japan. 
I have received most appreciative letters from all to whom we 
have sent boxes and money. 

Second hand clothing has also been distributed, and is al- 
ways most gratefully received. 

Again thanking each of my co-workers. 

Katie Battle Smith, 
Vice President and Supply Secretary

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL SERVICE 

The most encouraging reports to come in to your secretary 
have been those which indicated work well thought out, well 
planned, and well executed. A Christian Social Service program 
to be of real value must contain these three elements: thought 
that is deep, spiritual, and searching in its quest for truth; plan- 
ning that is carefully studied to meet the unfilled needs around 
us; and execution of those plans in a spirit of love for our fel- 
lcwman. 

There is an indication of a growing co-operation with the 
Social Agencies already existant in our communities, a realiza- 
tion that as Christians we have a great deal to offer which will 
supplement and fill out the usual social program, that there 
should never be a cleavage between the church and the agencies 
but a close and friendly relationship as we work together for 
our less fortunate brothers. 

In our own institution, the Thompson Orphanage, this year 
there has been a re-awakening cf interest on the part of the 
women throughout the Diocese. The response to the requests 
sent out by the Women's Co-operative Committee has been most 
generous and has helped not only in a material way but has 
buoyed up the spirit of the staff as wall as the children. 

A summary of activities in general is given elsewhere. One 
suggestion from a branch was that we not report all activities 
since they felt that in doing this, the real spirit was destroyed. 
May I say that we are not expected to report every little act 
of kindness, but those things done by the branches and kept 
in their records. Such a record is not for the purpose of getting 
credit nor for self emulation, but rather as a way by which we 
can measure cur growth from year to year and also by which 
we can see whether as a group we are putting into practice 
those things we preach, whether we are making our faith live 
in works. 

Finally, may I conclude with a reminder that the greatest 
thing in Christian Social Service is the spirit in which our deeds 
are done, that the ''gift without the giver is bare". And may I 
quote from Margaret Bondfield that "holiness is an infinite com- 
passion for ethers, that greatness is to take the common things 
of life and walk truly among them, and that happiness is a great 
love and a great service. Spiritual life does not begin in an 
arrogant attempt to change human beings; it begins in the 
recognition that human things can be very holy, full of God." 

Cama Clarkson, 
Christian Social Service Secretary 



REFORT OF THE DIOCESAN EDUCATIONAL SECRETARY 

1938 

Again it is time that I report to you on the state of Chris- 
tian Education in the Woman's Auxiliary. Out of a hundred and 
three branches only sixty six sent me any report. The figures 
in the various activities of this Department are about the same 



38 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

except that the number of women attending summer confer- 
ences showed an increase. 

Last year I reported to you that the need voiced by most 
secretaries, was how to get the women interested. That ques- 
tion is even more unanimous this year, and I think the thirty 
seven branches not reporting might be counted in on this. So, 
if we have one question which concerns a large majority of the 
branches that is the question which must be answered. 

Mrs. Gordon suggested to me that I bring a fresh approach 
to the whole subject and I have taken her at her word. Do you 
not think it is time we brought a fresh approach? Shall we not 
try to find out why all this splendid material for study which 
comes to us from 281 fails to interest the women? Is there 
something basically wrong? If so, is the matter with us? 

Let me srive you a definition which Dr. McGregor has giv- 
en, he said "Christian Education is learning to be at home with 
God." 

In just how much have we learned to be at home with God? 

What think ye of Jesus that is called the Christ? What did 
Jesus say about bringing in the Kingdom of Heaven? He said 
that nobody could bring it in except he should be born again. 

Our church leaders have flung us this challenge over and 
over, and we have been inspired and uplifted by it, but what 
have we done about it? It seems to me that the point is this. 
These leaders can't do this thing for us, we have got to do it 
for ourselves. Being born again can't be accomplished by hear- 
ing sermons, by attending services, it can't be thought through, 
important and necessary as all these things are, they are not 
enough. Being born again is a process which has to be acted 
upon, every man for himself. Therefore I say to you that the 
Department of Christian Education needs Schools of Life Chang- 
ing. These schools must be led by women like ourselves so that 
when we hear them say "this happened to me" we will know 
that if it could happen to them it could happen to us. They 
must be women whose lives have been changed, who have 
learned how to prepare their spirits for the Living Christ. 

Our emphasis has been on the gathering of facts about what 
other people are doing for the Kingdom. What we need now 
is a study of ourselves and what we can do to bring in the King- 
dom. 

If any of you feel this need I stand ready to meet with you 
and make plans for Schools of Life Changing. 

Only Christ can put a live interest into our work.

UNITED THANK OFFERING— 1938 

1 938 Spring $3,183.45 

1938 Fall 3,390.63 

Previously reported 70.77 

Interest 33.24 



TOTAL $6,678.09 

Offering at Annual Meeting 26.41 



TOTAL $6,704.50 



We all rejoice that the United Thank Offering for 1938 has 
again, as for the past several years, shown an increase amount- 
ing to $272.32. This is especially gratifying as this is the first 
year of the Triennium. The United Thank Offering from the 
Auxiliary throughout the country is greater for this Triennium 
than at the same point in the Triennium of 1935-37 — $140,000 
as compared with $112,000. 

When we realize how vital to the life of the church and of 
Christianity is the missionary work made possible by this offer- 
ing, do we not all unite in the hope that in 1940 when the Unit- 
ed Thank Offering is presented it will once again as in 1928 and 
1931, exceed $1,000,000? 

A questionnaire submitted to all branches in the Diocese 
this Fall gave a gratifying picture of the way in which the of- 
fering is presented. In almost every case it is offered at a Cor- 
porate Communion; in many cases the rector gives a talk on 
the United Thank Offering. Practically all branches have at 
least one meeting a year devoted to the United Thank Offering 
and the majority use the literature sent out from the Church 
Missions House. 

To the question "How many Auxiliary members use the 
Blue Box?" the average for those branches who replied was 
about 56%. 

Here I feel lies the opportunity for advancement in the 
United Thank Offering work — to bring the Blue Box to the at- 
tention and the appreciation of the other 44% of our women. 
It is my own belief that this can best be done by personal con- 
tact — by those who know and love the Blue Box, making it un- 
derstood by those who do not use it For this United Thank 
Offering is not a power in the church only because of the mis- 
sionary work it makes possible, but because of the spiritual 
growth it brings into the lives of those who make the offering. 
We cannot really use the Blue Box without enriching our spirit- 
ual life. Let me quote Bishop Whittemore in conclusion: "The 
Blue Box is a very simple affair but it is the symbol of a pro- 
cess of interaction between the Divine and the human of which 
the fruit is a finely tempered and adjusted spirit." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Margaret G. Holmes

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 47 



DUTIES OF DISTRICT CHAIRMEN 

1. Know the work of the Woman's Auxiliary. 

2. As th3 personal representative of the Diocesan Presi- 
dent, they should keep in close touch with every Branch and 
report, regularly to the President; notifying her of any change 
of officers, and of any emergency in the District. 

3. Keep an up-to-date list of Branches and officers in the 
district. 

4. Have a meeting with District Officers, at least once a 
year for a round table discussion. 

5. Attend Executive Board meetings as representative of the 
branches of her District. 

6. Arrange for two District meetings a year; spring and fall, 
with programs that would furnish information and create inter- 
est in work undertaken by the Diocesan Auxiliary and in mat- 
ters of immediate importance to the whole Church. 



DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The District of Edgecombe held its Spring meeting at St. 
John's, Battleboro. Bishop Penick and Mrs. R. W. Ballard spoke 
to us on Christian Social Service and gave us a vision and a 
plan for auxiliary work in this field. At the Fall meeting in The 
Church of the Saviour, Jackson, our guests were Miss Bessie 
Blacknall, our president, Mrs. Gordon, and Miss Almeria Gordon. 
At this meeting Mrs. C. H. Neville of Scotland Neck, was elect- 
ed Supply Secretary and Mrs. F. G. Jarman, Roanoke Rapids, 
Educational Secretary. 

Since for the past few years we have had no representa- 
tives at summer conferences, we are particularly glad to report 
that our district had four members to attend the conferences at 
Vadj Mecum and Kanuga last summer. We hope to make our 
attendance larger next summer. 

The district educational conference held in Tarboro, Novem- 
ber 2nd, was of great value in presenting practical aids and 
suggestions for conducting study courses on India. Part of the 
day's program consisted of an expertly conducted discussion of 
program building. From the standpoint of preparation and ex- 
ecution the conference was a success, but it was not well at- 
tended by the branches in the district. Believing it could be of 
great benefit to the district we would like to have this confer- 
ence another year. The suggestion was accepted at this meeting 
ihat the branches in our district make an offering of $75.00 as 
a result of our interest in India and that this amount be sent 
to Eishop Azariah to pay a native worker in the mission field of 
India. 

We wish to express our gratitude to Mrs. Gordon for con- 
ducting for us a conference on personal religion. We feel that 
these days of devoticn have made a deep impression on the 
.spiritual life of the auxiliary. 

Marion Alston Bourne, 
District Chairman 



FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The first step taken by your chairman in beginning her 
term of office was the calling of a meeting of all the branch 
presidents of the district for a full afternoon conference. It seems 
to have been a well worthwhile meeting, plans were outlined 
and discussed, questions raised — attempt was made to make the 
district set-up more effective. Among the matters discussed was 
the desirability of replacing the present plan for the luncheon 
at the district meeting by having a simple and very inexpensive 
meal served and served by some organization outside our 
church. It was thought that this plan would increase the attend- 
ance of both members of the hostess branch and of the visiting 
branches, some of whom find often at the last minute that it is 
possible to go to the meeting but that there is no time to pre- 
pare sandwiches for the luncheon. 

The spring meecing wh- held in Louisburg on April 27 with 
81 representatives present, several guests from a distance and 
four clergymen. At the luncheon, which was served at 35c — the 
price the executive board meeting felt should be adhered to, 
each district secretary attempted to have her parish secretaries 
sit with her at a separate table for a get-together meeting, 
which district officers and their parish officers seem sorely in 
need of, and which district officers of Granville will set them- 
selves the task of making provision for. 

The executive board meeting had decided to have reports 
of district secretaries in the fall only, with the exception of the 
U. T. O. report, and brief written reports of branches in the 
spring. The branch presidents responded to roll call with many 
outstanding and interesting statements of 'heir past year's work. 
The special speakers were Mrs. W. L. Long, uiocesan educa- 
tional secretary; Mrs. W. T. Melvin of Rocky Mount, former 
missionary to Cuba; and the Rev. David Yates of St. Phillips, 
Durham. Mrs. Long dttp.y impressed her listeners as she talk- 
ed on personal religion. Mrs. Melvin's account of her experience 
in Cuba and comments on Cuban life were delightful. Mr. Yates 
discussed the camps to be held in 1933 at Vade Mecum and ad- 
vanced excellent reasons for sending boys and girls to Church 
camps. 

in September the district chairman met with the district 
officers in Oxford (the fall meeting had been invited to Oxford) 
and with the Rev. C. A. Cole, rector of St. Stephen's, Oxford. 
This seems to have been a worthwhile meeting. 

The fall meeting in Oxford on October 19 was splendidly 
attended. Mrs. P. H. Thomas of Henderson was elected Prayer 
Partner. (Since this meeting the following appointments have 
been made: Mrs. Robert Smithwick, Lcuisburg, Supply Secre- 
tary; Mrs. J. P. Scoggins, Warrenton, Social Service Secretary; 
Mrs. C. A. Cole, Oxford, Chairman of Young People's Work). 

We were indeed fortunate in having with us at this meeting 
Mrs. W. J. Gordon and her duaghter, Miss Almeria Gordon, 
who has offered herself for missionary work; Miss Bessie Black- 
nail, and Rev. C. A. Cole, the new rector of St. Stephen's. The 
reports from the district secretaries showed increased interest 
especially in young people's work. The District of Granville is 
very proud to have among its members the diocesan Secretary 
of Young People's Work, Mrs. E. G. Peoples of Oxford. The re- 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 49 



port of the Custodian of the U. T. O. showed an increase this 
year. 

This is the close of my first 3 r ear as chairman of the Dis- 
trict of Granville. It has been a great privilege to serve you, and 
I trust that during the coming year district secretaries will come 
into closer contact with parish secretaries and thus enable all 
cf us to have a clearer knowledge of the work which we are 
trying to do. 

Beryl Morris Flannagan 



DISTRICT OF WAKE 

Our meeting was held on October 20 in Christ Church 
Parish House, Raleigh. Mrs. Kenneth Gant presided, this being 
the last meeting in her term of office. 

The eight branches gave splendid reports of active service 
and progress. Smithfield and Erwin tied for the greatest 
number present. The banner went to Smithfield, as Erwin 
had won at the fall meeting of 1937. 

We were so glad to welcome Miss Eessie Blacknall, who is 
on furlough from Alaska. She aroused in us a renewed interest 
in her problems and constructive work. Our offering was given 
to her for an immediate need. 

Sorrow was felt, at the passing of Mrs. H. L. Skinner, a 
very valuable member and leader of Saint Paul's, in Smithfield; 
we paused for a silent prayer in her memory. 

I am pleased to report an increase in cur United .Thank 
Offering. ". '" ..,".;; 

An interesting and intensive social service work is '. being 
carried on for the teen age girls in the Carleigh mill section. 
Mrs. Livisy has given of herself untiringly. We listened with 
great interest as she told how. she is teaching, these, -girl's .'house- 
hold and social arts. Their response is most gratifying. 

In November we had a week of wonderful meetings in the 
Church cf the Good Shepherd, Raleigh. The evening services 
were conducted by Bishop Darsf and the morning talks ; and 
meditations' by Mrs. Wm. Gordon. 

We were proud to have Almeria Gordon with us. She is giv- 
ing herself for work in the missionary field and mayGod's' bless- 
ing go with her. 

The closing message of this district meeting was given by 
our retiring president, Mrs. Wm. Gcrdon. May we ever . heed 
her council and advice and absorb much of that spiritual up- 
lift which she so freely gives to us. 

Mrs. Albert W. Tucker 



DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

Shortly after the convention in Rocky Mount, the district 
secretaries met with the chairman for discussions and formula- 
tions of plans for the year's work. Ihis coming together we feel 
has been a helpful feature and has tended to unify our efforts. 

In October the annual meeting of the District was held at 
St. Mark's Church in Roxboro. It was well attended and reports 
from the secretaries and branches, all told of an earnest striv- 
ing onward. 

In the parish reports for the year 1938 we ncte an increase 



FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



in gifts, well planned and well executed programs, a deepening 
of spiritual interest, a broadening of missionary vision, an ef- 
fort to train members for leadership and increased desire to co- 
operate with the young people. 

Those who have died during the year are: Julia Bo wen 
Peebles, Amy Griffiths of Chapel Hill, Sadie Smedes Irwin r 
Augusta Shroeder Miller of Durham and Mattie Ihrie Calvert of 
Pittsboro. 

In closing this report I wish to express thankfulness for this 
opportunity of service with the loyal church women of our dis- 
trict for it has been a joyful service. 

Bessie Harding Henry, 
Chairman 



DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

The past year's work in the Forsyth-Rowan District has 
been most encouraging. Each department has functioned well 
and has reported deeper spirituality in their several endeavors. 

The Spring Meeting was held in Christ Church, Walnut Cove, 
N. C. Due to illness some of our secretaries were unable to give 
reports, but the reports given and the interest shown was most 
gi atif ying. 

Our Fall Meeting was held in Christ Church, Cleveland, N. 
C. and this was one of the best meetings we have had. All re- 
ports were full and showed increased effort and achievement. 
We had our President, Mrs. Gordon, with us and she made a 
most inspiring talk. Miss Lillie Hill was also present and gave 
us some interesting details of her work and the good that is be- 
ing accomplished in her Mission field. At this meeting we voted 
to send a donation for the Liberian water supply. 

In looking through the yearly reports almost without ex- 
ception our Branches have reported increased gifts, and deeper 
interest. They have also reported that they had planned pro- 
grams, systematically carried out, and in looking forward to next 
years work they are planning more inspirational meetings. 

I hope that those in our District, who had the privilege of 
attending the Annual Meeting, will most earnestly absorb and 
carry home to their Branches two things. First, the underlying 
thought of our president's address that "the power of sin is ei- 
fective in the world, and we can bring the world to Christ only 
if we become more generous and faithful with our personal and 
material devotions to God's Kingdom". And secondly the won- 
derful address by Canon Howitt on "The Grace of our Lord 
Jesus Christ." 

We of the Forsyth-Rowan District wish to thank Mrs. Gor- 
don for her inspiring leadership and to pledge our support to 
the incoming president. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ruth W. Woodward 



DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The Spring meeting, held at The Church of The Holy Com- 
forter, Charlotte, carried out the theme of the preceding Dio- 
cesan Auxiliary meeting, that of Christian Fellowship. It ran 
through the various reports and talks, reaching a climax in a 
splendid address by Rev. J. A. Vache, in which he emphasized 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 



the urgent need for a union of Christian forces. Latest ii3\vs 
from the missionary fronts was given by Mrs. Marvin McCalL 
It was decided that the offering be sent to the China Emergency 
Relief Fund, and different branches gave five dollars toward the 
purchase of curtains for St. Mary's House. 

For the fall meeting at All Saint's Church, Concord, we were 
fortunate in having as our principal speaker Mrs. William J. Gor- 
don. She forcibly brought home our responsibility in the matter 
of filling the ranks of recruits for the mission field, urging that 
we seriously consider our own sons and daughters as prospects. 
She also made an eloquent plea for peace, stating that it must 
begin with the individual in the home before it can become 
world wide. At this meeting the following officers were elected: 
Mrs. W. L. Black, Recruiting Secretary; Mrs. R. E. Taylor, 
Prayer Partner Correspondent; Mrs. G. G. Sommers, Young Peo- 
ple's Secretary. The offering was again voted for the China 
Emergency Relief Fund. 

Eoth meetings were well attended, there being over ninety 
registered each time. 

In November we were distressed to learn of the resignation 
of our Prayer Partner, Deaconess Eleanore Sime, who was forced 
to give up her work in Nixon, Nev. because of illness in her 
family. 

During the year Mrs. W. L. Mauney was appointed Church 
Periodical Club Secretary, this office not being in the District 
organization previously. 

The various departments have functioned smoothly and ef- 
ficiently, and practically all the branches are carrying a full 
auxiliary program. It is gratifying to note a steadily growing en- 
thusiasm for the United Thank Offering, and a widening vision 
of the members, evidenced by then increasing interest in Dis- 
trict, Diocesan and National Auxiliary affairs. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Stuart A. Wannamker, 
Chairman 



DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

Our prayer during 1938 has been that each woman might 
realize more fully the great responsibility which rests with her 
as a member of the Auxiliary; and that she, at the same time, 
might be made conscious of the great possibilities which lie 
wilhin her when she becomes willing to be used by the Master. 
In reviewing the yearly reports it is most gratifying to find an 
answer to this prayer, for. without an exception, a deepened 
interest in the work and a spiritual growth is reported by the 
branches. 

The spring meeting was held at All Saints Mission, Hamlet. 
At this tme a number of splendid reports were made. All 
branches held Lenten study classes and a number of religious 
books were read during this season. Planned programs were sys- 
tematically carried out. All branches showed a lively interest 
in Social Service and had done many worthwhile things in va- 
rious ways, according to their needs and localities. Southern 
Pines continues her worthwhile work in the betterment of 
health conditions. Through the efforts of Mrs. T .A. Marshall, our 
Prayer Partner has become a very real friend, and in addition 



52 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 



to our prayers we send her gifts and letters. Splendid work goes 
forward in Wdaesboro, Rockingham, and Southern Pines in the 
C. P. C. 

Preceding cur Fall meeting, as is customary, the district 
secretaries met with the district chairman to discuss the year's 
work and to formulate plans for the ensuing year. 

The October meeting was held at Emmanuel Church in 
Southern Pines with a splendid attendance. Outstanding on this 
occasion was the talk made by Rev. F. E. Pulley in presenting 
the splendid piece of Social Service he has done with a group 
of underprivileged boys. The Mary Clifford Branch of the Aux- 
iliary in Wadesboro plans this coming year to equip a recrea- 
tional room for the Boys' Club and to contribute monthly to 
This organization. 

The United Thank Offering again shows an increase. It is 
significant to note that the offering in Southern Pines has grown 
from $10.00 in 1930 to $229 in 1938. 

Mrs. Gordon closed this meeting with a most impressive mes- 
sage, reminding the women of the district that our devotional 
theme should be "The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love 
of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit." 

Margaret Hudnell, 
Chairman 



DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

The Woman's Auxiliary in the District of Guilford, under 
the direction of Miss Lillie Hill, observed the general program 
as outlined by the diocese, in having two district meetings, a 
Quiet Day during Lent, in St. Thomas' Church, Reidsville, led 
by the Diocesan President, and an Educational Institute, in No- 
vember, in Greensboro, led by the District Educational Secre- 
tary. 

The Spring District Meeting, in the Church of the Messiah, 
Mayodan, emphasized the work of Christian Social Service. 
Mrs. R. W. Ballard effectively of this activity in general 
and of its particular application to the Thompson Orphanage. 
Rev. Morrison Bethea interpreted this department from a 
spiritual standpoint. The Fall meeting was held in Holy Trinity 
Church, Greensboro, and featured by a missionary emphasis, 
and by reports of the district officers. Miss Almeria Gordon 
spoke briefly of her sense of call to the mission field and her 
hope of being able to go out soon. Mrs. Gordon made the clos- 
ing address in which she called attention to the missionary 
situation in relation to this diocese. 

Representatives from this District attended the conferences 
at both Kanuga and Vade Mecum. 

Miss Hill's term of cfnce having expired, Mrs. W. S. 
Holmes was elected chariman of the District, but upon her elec- 
tion as president of the Diocesan Auxiliary, she resigned, and 
a new chairman will be chosen at the 1939 Spring meeting. 

A. C. G. 



THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 53 



NEGRO DISTRICT 

In looking back through the past year's work it is gratifying 
to report that the work of the Negro district is progressing. 

The keynote for 1938 was "Work, Pray, Give". These three 
points have been much stressed in the wcrk of the branches 
as their splendid reports show. 

The spring meeting was held at St. Titus' Church, Durham, 
N. C. 

The representatives from the district branches made fine 
reports of work being done in the Auxiliaries. 

A round table discussion lead by Miss Constance S. Young 
was greatly enjoyed by all. The topic discussed was, "If I be 
Lifted Up, I will Draw all Men Unto Me." 

It was both a pleasure and an inspiration to have Mrs. Wil- 
liam J. Gordcn and Miss Emma J. Hall to address the meeting 
on this occasion. As usual both speakers inspired the audience 
wtih their great enthusiasm for the work. 

The meeting was brought to a close with an address by 
Bishop Penick. Among the many beautiful and helpful things he 
said, he stated that "it takes an abundance of enthusiasm to 
irrigate and make fertile the fields of service to others and it 
is only thus that our souls grew and flower into a thing of 
beauty." 

The autumn meeting held at Warrenton, N. C, was a great 
success. It was well attended. Only four branches were not rep- 
resented. St. Luke's branch from Norlina, N. C. was added co 
the district roll. 

Never before have we had such splendid reports from the 
branches, and so much interest shown in the work of the Wo- 
man's Auxiliary. 

The reports show many phases of wcrk done such as, 
Bible classes, Prayer Book study, helping the sick and needy, 
helping children in church schools, providing scholarship for girl 
in college and helping on the fields of missions financially. 

We were made very happy by a visit from Mrs. Holmes, 
United Thank Offering Custodian. She gave a very interesting 
history of the United Thank Offering. 

Mr. William J. Gordon, Jr. speke on Young People's Service

Miss- Hall asked that the district help with the water supply 
at a mission in Liberia. Ten dollars was pledged by the branches 
for this.

54 FIFTY-SEVENTH ANNUAL REPORT 

COMMITTTE REPORTS 

RECRUITING GOING FORWARD 

"These twelve Jesus sent forth and charged them, saying — 
As ye go, preach saying, The Kingdom of heaven is at hand- 
Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out demons; 
freely ye received, freely give." 

Preach, saying the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Brazil is 
asking for two priests. China needs at least one and Japan asks 
for six. Liberia and the Philippines each ask for one priest. Wo- 
men of the Auxiliary, have you talked with one young man 
about these opportunities? Jesus never promised that His work 
will be easy; but tell these young men that Jesus has promised 
great blessings to all who receive His disciples, and that He will 
be a strong help and comfort through the hardships the disciples 
endure for His dear sake. 

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out 
demons. Jesus did all of these things in his brief ministry on 
earth, and He said "Greater works than these shall ye do". In 
cocperation with these priests we need evangelistic workers,, 
teachers, doctors and nurses. 

From the Church Missions House I learn there is a perennial 
appeal for young women with teaching abliity who are trained 
for religious work among women and children. There are earnest 
appeals from China, Japan and the Philippines. Auxiliary wo- 
men, have you told your college daughters and their friends so 
they are now taking special training for this work? Trained 
teachers with hearts aflame to give a Christian education are 
asked for in these fields. This year our Diocese has girls graduat- 
ing and prepared to teach music and physical education. Do 
they know that St. Agnes School, Kyoto is asking for teachers 
in these subjects? Do we have sons in college in our Diocese 
who know that a man is wanted to teach English at St. Pauls 
University, Tokyo and another man is wanted for high school 
work in Brazil? As Auxiliary recruiters it is our privilege to 
make these facts known, not just generally, but to particular 
people. 

From Church Missions House we learn "We never seem to 
be able to find nurses to care for the constant calls from the 
various fields". Alaska does so want a nurse to do public health 
work where thei-e is no hospital, no helper, and no doctor. Only 
a stout heai-ted, self reliant, thoroughly Christ like woman who 
is ready for pioneer living conditions can be sent. 

"He lhat findeth his life shall lose it; and he that loseth his 
life FOR MY SAKE shall find it." 

Do you know church girls now in hospital training who can 
be told of the needs in China, in Japan, in Alaska, in Liberia? 
Who will answer the great variety of calls from St. Luke's Hos- 
pital, Japan and St. Luke's, Manila or Brent Hospital, the Phil- 
ippines? All these calls are for nurses who have had supervisory 
experience and have ability to train student nurses. Can we find 
these young women in our Diocese? 

Doctors are needed at St. Luke's Tokyo, and in China. No 
permanent arrangements have been made to replace Dr. Burke 
at Ft. Yukon. Only two short years ago Mrs. Burke was with us 
and told so joyously of Dr. Burke's work, — he was doctor, nurse, 
evangelist, teacher, priest, janitor and odd job man for every

need. How happy he must be in his present life; how prayerfully 
we must seek for another Dr. Burke. 

What kind of young men and women. can answer these calls? 
Here is the answer from the Church Missions House: 

Those who go should be, preferably, between the ages of 
twenty-five and thirty-five. They should be free from family 
responsibilities here at home, and ready to devote a substantial 
number of years to the work, (an offer of life service is, of 
course, ideal). Ordinarily, our missionary bishops prefer to ask 
for the appointment of those who have had a year or so of ac- 
tual experience in their chosen professions, but much depends 
upon the individual. It is particularly important that those who 
go out, be in the very best of health. Climatic and living condi- 
tions en the foreign field are not easy. 

How shall we auxiliary members find ones who fulfill th
